JFF - Postcard



This is my entry for this weeks Just For Fun which is Postcards.

Anyone who knows me well, knows I dont care alot for holidays, Im very much a home bird and being a bad traveller dont wander very far. We love Disneyland at Paris as the journey is a quick one so I dont have any trouble. But for years if I went away postcards home never said 'wish you were here' they always said ' I wish I was there'

I dont like the sun either , Im sure I should have been a vampire as Im happier when its dull and gloomy.
As soon as I saws that the challenge was 'Postcards' the first thing that sprang to mind was 'I wish I was there'

This is my Postcard which was made with a 6 x 4 piece of photo paper which I dropped alcohol inks onto using colours which made it look gloomy and rainy stormy weather.
I added the umbrella man which I cut out in white , sometimes when i look at it , it looks as though Ive used an umbrella man mask and inked the paper around it, but its not, its just attached over the top. Of course my Postcard wouldnt be the same if it didnt include my ' Wish I was there'

Hope you have a lovely weekend its work for me soon till midnight then back at 8am in the morning , thanks for stopping by my blog its much appriciated

Love it, just the sort of card that makes you want to stay at home! I thought you had used a mask your white umbrella man is very striking. Thank you for joining us again at Just for Fun XOXO Zoe

Think I had better swap places with Von who is wishing for rain - we have had rain most of May in the north. Oh for some sunshine!
I love your take on this. It did make me smile when I read the words you had included. Love your background and your umbrella man. Striking!
Thanks for joining us again at JFF - Hugs, Neet x
