Switzerland was chosen by Darcy this week.
I thought of many options for this weeks card including a mountain chalet, a Swiss cow, chocolates...just to name a few.
I decided that Maggie should keep sending "her" paintings as postcards as much as possible.
I started with a piece of black cardstock. It gave the much needed depth and shadow to a two color palette. I learned this technique from watching Bob Ross painting series on our local PBS station
I mounted the finished painting on an oversized piece of white cardstock then cut it down with my deckle edge scissors.
Maggie writes of days filled with painting and the wonderful chocolates. She slips up an mentions that she may have to let out a seam or two...how embarrassing for her.
The stamp and tiny flag are from my Swiss friend, Margaret who is also participating in this challenge.
She also sent me the Swiss cow ribbon and flag pick that I've added to my page. They add that special pop of color and whimsey to the page.
