On Your Bike CTD332

It's so hard to explain why I've taken so long to ink up Postage Due, but maybe I do really have too many stamp sets!!! No, never!!!

Anyway, now that this stamp has seen ink, it's really getting a bit of a workout. This is the second card I've made with it, and there's a third on the way too. Love those postage stamp images and luckily we still sell the Postage Stamp punch, which finishes them off so authentically. I coloured the long stamp from Butterfly Basics to look a bit like the aerogrammes my grandmother used to write home, while she cruised around the world in the 1960's. She must have missed her family even though she loved travel, because these aerograms came very regularly.

The colours suit the challenge at Color Throwdown although my Cherry Cobbler seems a bit darker than the red in the picture. I used Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Night Of Navy too.

Thanks for visiting my blog, I'd love it if you have time to leave a comment.
