Tuesday with Val and a Postcard

Happy Tuesday!
Today I have a postcard to share.
It features stamps designed by Roc Nicholas
(as well as a few in the background that are harder to see in this pic).
Is that bird playing a dangerous game of hide and seek?
Thanks for stopping by!
Val :)
Stamps by Stampotique Originals:
Feline, Just Be U, Heart Vine, Scalloped Lace Border,
Jo's Flower Block, Vintage Script, Vintage Postcard
The background has been created with vibrant colors of Dylusions sprays.  Feline has been stamped on patterned paper and plain paper.  The colorful parts of the cat have been colored with Copics on the plain image and then cut out and applied to the patterned paper cat.  Just Be U has ben stamped on other papers made with Dylusions sprays and then cut out and applied to the background with Feline above it.  The border has been stamped on patterned paper, painted with white acrylic paint, cut out and applied to the edge of the card.  The word Just and the Heart Vine have been stamped directly on the background and colored with Copic markers.  Unseen background stamps have been stamped on the background paper with Versamark ink and brushed over with Perfect Pearls to make them shimmer in the light (pretty in person).  Faux stitches have been drawn around the edge to provide a border and finish off the piece.

Love that cat perched (seriously, perched?) upon your important message! You have used a lot of great stamps to create postcard art, Val, and have done so creatively. Your faux stitching perfectly complements Roc's Scalloped Lace Border!
