Color Inspired Postcard (Crafting Away From Home #1)

Hello! This is one of my pre-planned projects before I left for the Philippines. The sentiment is from Trinity Stamps So Appreciative stamp set. 

To prepare for my crafting away from home, I trimmed a Strathmore Bristol paper to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I stamped the sentiment on this paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I die cut the stitched stamped frame on white cardstock. The frame is from TS Crafty Post 3x4 Stamp & Postcard die bundle. 

I trimmed a light weight paper at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I stamped the elements to create this into a postcard on this paper. The stamps I used are from the same die bundle I used for the frame. 

Now, it just needs coloring and assembling so I will I need a coloring medium and glue in my to go crafting pouch. 

I colored the panel using using Akashiya Sai Watercolor brush pens. I adhered the frame to the panel. I adhered the stamped panel to make it into a postcard. This is not suitable for mailing yet. I have to apply a sealer to the watercolored panel to protect it when mailed. 

Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
