Altered Postcard Swap

I'm hosting an altered postcard swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group in April.  It's always a VERY good idea for me to come up with a sample before I post the swap.  So here's a sample that I made.  I used an old postcard that shows a British war memorial.  I decided to keep the memorial theme and added cemetery angels, flowers, music, a clock and a photo of a British serviceman.  Before I started I scanned in the postcard.  No way was I working on the postcard to start with.  Working with the scanned image let me finalize the design before committing to it. I stamped the postcard with coffee archival ink but masked the memorial statue, so that it would not be stamped.
The cemetery angels, flowers, British serviceman photo, clock button, and German scrap are all available at Collage Stuff.
If you'd like to participate in this swap, join the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group.  I'll be posting this swap later on in the week.
Thanks for stopping by!
