"Altered Postcard" - Postcard

This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was "Alter A Postcard."

I started with this free Red Roses Easter Postcard. I cut out just the postcard, and enlarged it to fit on a 6" x 4" postcard. I added a vintage page as the underlying background, to cover the full postcard size. I used sponge brushes to cover over most of the text on the original postcard. Then I added the foreground images and text.

I created this using GIMP 2.8.16.

The vintage images are from an Internet search. (See the side of my blog for links.)

Thank you if you leave a comment. I apologize if I don't reciprocate. Also, my artwork posts might be sporadic for awhile.

So pretty! I love the new border text you created. It gives it that vintage framed look.

In the U.S. the term "a broad" might be used as a crude term for a woman, so I had to smile when I saw your beautiful card. Very nice alteration!
