Travelling Light

I was well ahead of myself for the Sunday Postcard Art this week in the theme of 'Travel'.  I worked out a design and created it yesterday.  When I woke up this morning and got ready to take a picture, it just didn't look like anything I would create.  It was so sombre and bland.  All kind of beige on beige if you can imagine that.
A new way of looking at things
I started again with the same basic concepts but got out some lovely colourful ink (Dylusions London Blue and Vibrant Turquoise.) And could not resist adding some colour to the Union Flag.

The tickets were stamped with an Indigo Blue plate called Travel on various coloured paper with various archival inks.  I then cut them to ticket shape and punched the little half circles using a single hole punch.  There is a ticket wrapped around the card at the top right hand side with a hole punched right through the card.
Steam punk Traveller
The steam punk traveller and the sentiment are stamped in StazOn Jet Black.  Steam punk man had his binoculars 'enhanced' with some bronze paint applied with the lid from a waterbrush.  And the reflection on his lenses is create with a white souffle pen.
