Scratchy Postcard

You caught a glimpse of it on my desk on Wednesday and here it is...

I was at a bit of a loss as what to put on it as I had no wood to practise on and didn't know how hard it would be.  The leaflet in the pack unhelpfully suggested a heart with an arrow through it and initials, scratched on with a key.  I decided against this (he's not that kind of a friend!) and went for mainly straight lines and an Etch Art tool... because straight lines couldn't be too hard, right?  Wrong!!  I'd definitely like to have had a scrap piece to practise on first!

Anyhoo, I plumped for bunting and a scratched message in the pennants.  I changed my mind as my hands and wrists hurt too much to do any more scratching, and stamped the message in StazOn.

I bought a few and I definitely want to try again but only on a day when my hands and wrists are feeling particularly strong!! :)


  1. it's turned out really cool! Hope your wrists feel better soon - I'm sure he will appreciate the pain this caused!!! M x

  2. This has turned out fabulous, Must give this a try, I hope you poor wrists have recovered, Hugs May x x x x
