Woodland Potato Postcard

Hello.  Welcome.  Mr Potato wanted to play along with the VLVS challenge.  He says he's a forest animal.  

I started with a 6 x 4" piece of pale blue card.  I stamped the VLVS concentric circle stamp all over the blue card using Watering Can archival ink.  I used 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th impressions, stamping til I could stamp no more, and then re-inking.  I took some pages from a dictionary, words beginning with P, and coloured with Old Paper, Tea Dye and Stormy Sky distress inks.  I ripped the dictionary pages up and stuck them over the blue stamped card.  VLVS Mr Potato stamped on old book paper, embossed, fussy cut and coloured with Promarkers and white gel pen.  The VLVS sentiment was stamped and embossed on old book paper and layered on a couple of pieces of the blue stamped card.  I used my craft knife and did some serious distressing on the edges.

"It is as bad as you think and they are out to get you!"

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
