"Postage People" - Bette Davis

This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was “Postage People.” I never heard of these before, so I don’t know whether or not I made mine correctly, but I had fun doing it. My primary postcard is Bette Davis. I also decided to make Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe (see below), to get more practice using GIMP. I got their heads (postage stamps) from the US post office. The bodies are made from other sources, and are not their own. For a detailed description, see blog post "Postage People" - Detailed Description below.

I saw this collection of stamps of famous people on Google and was impressed with their clarity and size. You have done a fantastic job with them. Your postage people postcards are stunning and so beautifully composed.

This is fantastic! I printed out a collection of movie star stamps - Bette, Audrey, Lucy and Marilyn but I just could not get them to work for me. You did exactly what I would have liked to have done! And you did it so well! "Simply divine!" as Bette would have said!
