Swaperoo Postcard

Hello Friends! 

Today I have want to share a 4x6 in postcard that I created for the Stampotique Designers Challenge "Swaperoo" was the theme. You can check out the info HERE and join yourself!! :D 
(The basics are to switch bodies and heads...)

Stamps Used: 

Other Products:
Distress Oxide Inks: worn lipstick, picked raspberry, spiced marmalade, fossilized amber
grey ink (can't remember the brand)
Stazon Ink- Jet Black
Distress Ink Stains- Picket Fence 
Tim Holtz :small talk" stickers
Micron Markers,
White Gelly Roll pens
Zig Clean Color markers (various colors)
Wink of Stella -Glitter Clear
Blick Markers (various colors)
Scrap paper to create "masks"
Tim Holtz Layering stencils
Dylusions Stencil
Gold foil sticker tape (from an old swap)

Start with card stock cut to 4x6 in.  "Pretty Zara" was stamped first.  (I was careful to ink only the parts I wanted of the head and collar).  I then masked this part off with scarp paper.  I carefully stamped the Body of "angel squared" over this mask.  

Now that you have the base image,  you can begin building up the base and background. I chose pinks and yellows for this (colors listed above in supply lists) 

Once you have some base color added you can start adding background stamps and stencils.  I began with "circled lines". then added various layers of stenciling.  When I was satisfied with this I added some texture with "texture cube 1". You can do it in any order you choose. 

I also Added some white details with my gelly roller, and some black with my micron. 

Now, the best part.....
Take off the mask...
(I added my distress stain after removing the masks, but yo may choose to do it before)

Sorry I forgot to take a picture here...
I colored with various markers (zig and blick)

Finish everything off with a fun quote, and some gold foil. 

I hope you have been inspired to make a "swaperoo" of your own :D
Have a fantastic day!
