These postcards are 4″W x 6″H. The backgrounds watercolor paper which I used as paint waste paper – a blend of several acrylic paints. Each card is backed with a piece of watercolor paper with old used postage stamps glued all over. After adhering the two sides together, I sewed around the edges with my machine. The newsprint is actual 1858 newspaper ads – I ordered the ephemera from The Prints and the Paper on Etsy. The female images are from Go Make something, a great site for FREE images. Thank you Lisa! The black swirls are napkin fragments added to the final collage.
