Postcard Challenge week 6

 
This week Darcy announced that our country was Belgium. Again, I know I have some fun stuff from Belgium but I can't find it!! I looked in the nooks and crannies of my art zone but apparently in the 6 years since I put together that book, my leftovers have crawled away.

Instead, I decided on a watercolor. And now that it's complete..I'm so glad I couldn't find my goodies from Belgium. :)


On the back of the corner Chocolate Shop postcard Thadeus writes about his current situation in Belgium. That he's renting a room from an older couple and had come to a standstill in his research.
He feels that the piece he is working on is the key to the puzzle.




I've also completed the page that will hold the postcard.



I've added a couple extras to the story... just for fun.

While your card is fabulous and the story intriguing, it is the page for it and the extras that caught my eye most today. I love the texture that it adds! The combination of all the pieces is wonderful.

You know how much I love fabric and anything you make associated with sewing is simply awesome. But that Chocolate Shoppe is superb. See, I KNEW I would not be able to draw anything for this challenge. But I love what you have done.

Halle! Oh yeah got to love the chocolate shops. I love your illustration and how you handle watercolors. Mine is watercolor but not even close to being as loose as yours is. Very nice visual. Love it. *smiles* Norma
