Girls Wanna

I've been watching the Sunday Postcard Art themes for a couple of months, hoping to squeeze out some arty time if a theme struck my fancy.  Mostly it's been lack of time keeping me away from my play space.

But this week, the Anything Goes theme had me pulling out all my unfinished postcards to see which one I could finish.


 These girls were already stamped on the blank postcard.  






I colored them in, drew them a tall bench to sit on, inked the background and stamped the checked edges.  "GIRLS" is from a roll of alphabet Washi Tape.  I cut apart the letters to spell the word.   "just wanna have fun" is typed with a label maker and inked, then trimed for size.  "Girls just wanna have fun" is an old motto of mine that I just wanna get back to.

Thank you for visiting.  Now go have some fun!

I love all your girls in their pretty coloured outfits and I wonder what they will do to have fun? Getting down from that high bench might be a start, that's very cleverly drawn, but they look perfectly happy sitting up there. The way you have made the letters from Washi tape is so effective too. You are a postcard-making and stamping genius.
