Alphabet Postcards, B & C – and Gingersnap Shades of Blue

Here are B & C of my Alphabet Postcards for Lots to Do. 
B is for Blue and for Birds – I used the blues (Distress inks Chipped Sapphire and Tumbled Glass) so that it fits into the Gingersnap Shades of Blue challenge.  There’s also a little bit of Adirondack Slate on there, at the bottom ;)  Stamps from Paperartsy and Time to Stamp.  Large alphabet stamp from Ma Vinci’s Reliquary.

B is for Bird
C is for Clowns and also for Colour.  I brayered Tutti Frutti Big and Juicy ink (not one of my usual favourites, I have to add, lol) onto the first background, which was watercolour paper, then stamped and embossed the Clown (Pierrot)  and word stamps from Paperartsy and cut them out.  The image is a bit ‘mottled’ because of the watercolour paper – it’s not easy to stamp.  The second background was brayered with a Mesh roller on my trusty Fiskars Brayer, spritzed with water, then overstamped with the Harlequin stamp, which is a Jumbo rollagraph, taken off the wheel.  Alphabet stamps from Hero Arts.
