Destiny Tinman - Fairy Ink post

Destiny Tinman was my inspiration for the sentiment that was ideal for a postcard to send to a friend.
I have a friend who was in need of some pick me up!  So I thought this would be the perfect postcard to cheer her up!  And I'm very happy to report that it did work.  And how easy is it to make a little postcard like this when you have a great image to work with and just some recycled material.  
Of course I'm French.... so I messed up the saying... should have said Tin-king of you... and not Thin-king of you... oh well I'm sure that was also part of what cheered my friend up lol
I have made a little video to share with you the process of this in case you want to do something similar and this one was a SUPER fast make so you have no reason not to try this out.

And here's the actual little postcard that I made.

The image was colored with my copics.  I fussy cut her out.  The background was simply some deli paper that I use as the cover sheets to my desk when I work.  They become covered with yummy paints and work fantastically for this type of fast little project.  I handwrote the sentiment and then fussy cut it and edged it with some Faber Castell pen.  The edge of the postcard was also edge with this.  I finished it off with some little dots all around.
I hope you will be checking out this new image and that you will be inspired to send some mail to your friends!

Have a great Memorial Day weekend.
