Postcard Tag

It's all about postcards over at Tag Tuesday - use postcard(s), use the word postcard, .....
The background for this tag is a postcard image from the Graphics Fairy. I cut it into tag shape, distressed the edge with Tea dye distress ink, stamped text from Sugar and Spice on to the postcard in chocolate brown, a stamp and a postmark (stamp from Eline Pellinkhof) completed the postcard. The recipient of the postcard is a little boy sitting on a mushroom surrounded by some leafy environment (leaf stamp from Lavinia).
The mushroom stamp is a silicone stamp from La Blanche ... the first time ever I used a silicone stamp and I am very happy with it. It stamps very well and is easy to clean.
To finish it I used some dark brown string. Have a good week, Petra.

Not got my act together and made anything - must get my skates on.
