Let me explain! My brother has been researching our family tree for several years now, and is making good sense of our shared past. There are many sepia photographs and medals relating to family members who were served in World War I, some of which have been mounted in display frames. With the recent commemoration of the start of WWI, I thought this would be an alternative way to use this gorgeous poppy image, adding to it a quote by John McCrae.
I coloured it in sepia tones to blend well with the photographs, using a combination of Satin, Pastel Beige, Sandstone, Cinnamon and Cocoa ProMarkers. The edges of the postcard were softened with Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo Distress Inks, before mounting the finished image on a piece of Kraft card.
Pop over to Sentimental Sundays to see how the rest of the DT have used their images!
