Postcard Challenge Episode 3 BRAZIL


Here we are on our third week of Darcy's Postcard Challenge 2012,( see on side bar) and we are in BRAZIL. I knew immediately which stamp to use for my postcard, my carnival dancer from Rubbadubbado.
I started by colouring the background with TH Distress inks in bright carnival colours. I used a dandelion stamp, embossed with Silver Bells Wow! powders to look like fireworks. I coloured my dancer in the colours of the Brazilian flag. My OH suggested Motor Racing, son said football. I think not. I love the glitter, the feather and bling on this.
My postcard, above, from Hermione to her parents, which is always posted to a safe house PO Box, where it is collected by a courier, who then delivers it to where her parents actually are. I am enjoying our adventure around the world each week as Hermione and her parents communicate with each other I am getting to know more about them, you'll be amazed how much more there is to be known about all three, time will tell.

I am still having commenting problems with IE, sadly I can not access every page to leave comments on those who are taking part in Darcy's challenge. I am leaving comments where I can. Sorry Darcy, I can't comment on your fabulous dancer either, nor to let you know how much I am enjoying this weekly challenge. Thanks.
