Vintage Gentlemen Postcard

This week at the Sunday Postcard Art challenge blog, the theme is VINTAGE GENTLEMEN.  They are some of my favorite people for art.


I didn't take process photos as there wasn't much plan for this postcard.  These were most of the supplies I used.  He just surprisingly came together.  I kept thinking this card was going to go to the trash along the way, then suddenly it just felt right.  

I used the die to cut the upper left corner of the card then glued it over a dark paper to peek through the holes.  I then stamped my vintage gentlemen.  I put a mask over him and stamped the unreadable words behind him.  I then added washi tapes, trimming them around him.  Finally adding some shading around the image. 


The correspondence side.


Happy Mail Day!

This is another postcard masterpiece and I love seeing the ingredients.
What a good idea to cut up washi tape letters and use them singly. I am fascinated by what you did with the corner and die, dies are a dark art to me, what you did is so effective and creative. Great work with the old-fashioned adverts too. Your card is all together perfect.

Great vintage postcard. I have been going through old family pictures with my cousins and we have found that many of them from the early 1900's are actually postcards on the back.

This postcard has so much to look at. Really like the effect in the left corner. Was trying to work out how you did it but read on and got the answer.

So love this postcard, Annie! I appreciate the time and effort that it took you to create this one. So many elements, not the least of which is your clever use of washi tape. Perfect vintage image and color palette. A+ from me!
