It's a new month and a new challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge. This month the theme is Sunset, and the optional element is Postage Stamp.
My background is made from encaustic wax applied with a craft iron, and the highlights were made with a white gel pen. I stamped the cruise liner on white card, cut it out and added shading with Distress Ink. I placed the three quotes on a long acrylic block, inked them up in similar colours to the background and stamped on spare card, then grunged the edges with scissors.
The cruise ship image reminded me of when we emigrated to Australia not long after we were married in the late 1970s, hence the Australian postage stamp on my card. It took four and a half weeks from England to Sydney via South Africa. We were the rump of the Ten Pound Poms (although it cost us a bit more than that), and it was the next-to-last sea voyage - flights only after that.
