Gypsy postcard

This morning I wanted to share a altered postcard that I finished last night for our July Altered Book Club meeting.  To make this card I started with a piece of chipboard and 2 pieces of cardstock 4" x 6". One side of each piece of cardstock was aged using Distress Ink Old Paper and Tea Dye and a large selection of my altered art stamps.  After aging and stamping the cardstock I glued them to the chipboard base. I added color to the image using my Copic markers.  I love using my altered art supplies and I hope you like it too.  If you have any questions about my postcard leave me a comment. Have a great 4th of July everyone, be safe.
