I just love working with old postage and postal ephemera so this stamp is perfect!
To create the card I actually stamped the Postcard three times onto Neenah Desert Storm card stock. Each time I colored directly onto the stamp (the stamps and the meter code) with different color Distress markers and then applied Archival black to the rest of the postcard.
The edges of each were inked with Vintage Photo Distress ink to give them a nostalgic feel.
I wanted the card to look like a pile of mail/postcards so I arranged them in that fashion on a piece of Tim Holtz paper and tied some twice around them before matting them onto the card base.
Here a closer look:
