A postcard from dear old blighty!!

Sunday Postcard Art asked for "vintage men", while Dezinaworld Spotprize Challenge want us to "celebrate our Homeland".
Being a "true blue Brit" the 2 went together perfectly for me :D
No matter how we advance in the worlds of science, technology and fashion, we will ever be known for our classically Victorian eccentricity!!

Add to that our veracious need to "collect" and "catalogue" everything on earth and beyond, and I was able to include "Butterflies and Dragonflies" for this months Stamp Man Challenge :D

The background paper and man in balloon are both from Dezinaworld, and I have "aged" the piece with Tim Holtz distress inks in Frayed Burlap, Brushed Corduroy(as worn by any self respecting british explorer) and Aged Mahogany :D
