This was one of the first postcards I made for this series, before I actually researched the USPS guidelines, so I have to use a 44 cent stamp to mail it. I couldn’t cut it smaller, because I’d alrady made the little frame on the inside (you can see the writing behind it). I am not terribly thrilled with how it turned out. I have nice papers, and a nice stamp of a chandelier, which I made gold with embossing powder, but all the pieces didn’t come together. It’s like cooking with world class ingredients and still making something that doesn’t taste good. There’s not a lot of craftsmanship involved in this, it’s all just taste and creativity.
