Art Papers Online Postcard Swap

I participated in a Postcard Swap held by Art Papers Online. I have been fortunate to have visited Venice, Italy  twice, both times unforgettable. Here is my postcard with the highlights.... a Venetian Mask, the Grand Canal, Murano Glass, Gondola's,  Gondoliers and  Saint Mark's Square.

 Stamped with distress ink.

 I  painted Verde Gris Perfect Glaze on the front of the postcard  then let dry. Adhered picture of the Grand Canal after I painted it with PPA and added Mica and Crystal Effects.  I used a stencil and Light 101 Artist Cement  to add my butterfly's then painted with Mica Color.  I cut out the Venetian Mask with a Spellbinders die and  coated with Duo then when tacky covered with Gliden Glitz. I  made flowers and added Prills with PPA Gloss. I used the gold from the Mica Color to paint gold around the edges.
