Sunday Postcard - Postage People


This is a great challenge. I’m sure it has stretched us all to learn something new, thanks to Marion. I made the checkered background. The body is from a sepia drawing by Graphic Fairy (coloured). The crown is from Lisa’s Altered Art.
The stamp is Russian, the year 1986 and the pictures are of Peter I. Tchaikowsky, composer, and (I am guessing) a Russian space station. I am not sure what the connection is. I thought it might have been the centenary of Tchaikowsky’s death but he died in 1893.
The quote is by Maya Angelou but seemed to fit the composer as he was something of a tortured genius.
I am now a fan of postage stamp people art!!

  21. I think this postcard is as close to perfection as I can imagine. The mellow antiques hues of the card are just right for the composition, and the quote is so thought proviking. I can't believe this all started with a tiny little postages stamp.
