An Old Postcard (by Asha)

Good morning, fellow Chocoholics. My turn today to share a project and I'm playing with one of the new cling singles called Walled Garden. Here's a simple project that you could easily make without getting too inky. I was inspired by my grandmother's very old holiday snaps. 

To recreate this old postcard look, start by stamping the image on cream cardstock. I coloured it with alcohol markers, but pencils will work well too. Lastly, ink the edges with Distress Ink. To soften the wall I added stamped the falling ivy from the June Fairy DL sheet.

I've made a simple card but with this stamp you can do so much more. Come back soon and be prepared to be wowed by the rest of the team. As always you'll find more detail about this card on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!



  1. Lovely 'postcard'! A delightful use of the stamp with wonderful colouring. The falling ivy is a great finishing touch. Debra x

  2. Beautiful little scene Asda. Love the soft colouring & the trailing ivy is the perfect finishing touch.

  3. A lovely large image and so prettily coloured Asha, and the ivy you have added looks great with it, and you have made it nicely vintage with your inking round the edges. x

  4. How lovely, your colouring is great.

  5. really pretty asha - gorgeous make xx

  6. Fun way to make the stamp look "old"!
