On Our Travels with Darcy's Postcard Challenge - Mexico

Apologies from the start for the poor photography, the light is so poor, I ended up taking these shots at a very funny angle. I can not believe we are at the end of our round the world trip. I made my page and postcard fun to reflect the fun this challenge has been. Thank you so much for organizing it Darcy and thanks to to my fellow travelers for your kind comments, encouragement and for sharing your amazing artwork and stories with me.
All the best for 2013 to you all.

On Our Travels with Darcy's Postcard Challenge - Greenland

The National flower of Greenland is Rose Bay willow herb which is one of my favourite wild flowers. Hence my postcard. I have used a digital stamp of the flower from Dover and coloured it using Aquatone pencils and a water brush. My page shows some of the glorious views to be found in Greenland and the polar bear found on the countries coat of arms.
Hard to believe we have only one country left to visit. Thank you Darcy this has been a fabulous challenge.

My postcard from Hawaii is a photograph of John on his windsurfing trip to Maui last year. He is so proud of this jump. I added the flowers and text in Craft Artist 2. My page depicts the surf the islands that make up Hawaii and the pocket one of the welcoming dances performed there. I am digital this week as still on holiday in Canada.

On Our Travels with Darcy's Postcard Challenge - Sweden

Had a go at my own version of the Northern Lights for my postcard using Distress Stains on black gloss card on top of a background of Perfect Pearls and Twinking H2Os. Had fun. My page shows two famous Swedes, Nobel and Ingrid Bergman and a couple in national dress. The pocket is a photo of one of the many art works to be found in Stockholm on the underground. Check it out some of the ceilings are amazing. Check out too the postcards of fellow travelers here. By the time Blogger posts this I will be on my way to Canada to the snow.
