and I also knew what I wanted to do with it:. Now, this was the easy part.... it looked slightly different when it came to translate the idea into action (lol). At first I added the word 'memory' in Graffiti font, then I changed the background digitally using various methods: underlaying it with crackle texture from Vintage Findings, soften the colours and lines, give it a comic book like appearance, play with contrast and brightness levels, frame it
Rock Candy Stickles gave the letters a slightly sparkly appearance; stamps from Artistic Outpost, from a papercraft magazine, Lily of the Valley and Lost Coast design were used to create my memory image
The final step was to tell the story ... and print it on transparency
The transparency acts as a little cover for the postcard
