Victorian PostCard

This was made for a recent swap for the theme “Vicorian”.  It is on two 4×6 index cards glued together.  Text writing with black pen, covered with two colors of blue acrylic paint and gesso.  Glued various cutouts of Victorian style flowers.  Took a fingernail file to the images to “age” them a bit.  Found printed text outlined with white Signo pen and charcoal pencil for the outside border.

I sent it like a regular postcard instead of sealing it in an envelope.  I like the idea of my art being “out” to be handled until it reaches its destination.  Maybe it brought an unexpected smile to someone.
