Playing By The Shore

Recently I shared a Journal I decorated using one of Trishia’s French Kissed Postcard scans that she made available as a freebie in the month of February and which I entered into her Kissed Again competition (read all the details on her FKP Blog). She has also been sharing some unloved digital scans, one of which was a vintage bathing belle. Well I couldn’t resist playing with this image and here is the postcard I created.I gathered little bits of this and that and to support the image I used stamps from Oxford Impressions’ By The Sea. This stamp set has a vintage bathing theme so they were perfect.Trishia is also hosting another competition called Love Me Two, so lots of fun over at the FKP Blog.
