Greetings from Venice!!

Don't you just love sight seeing, hearing and smelling the different sights, sounds and scents from around  the world?   Fortunately for us, we really did not smell the canals in Venice.  I would absolutely love to go there and visit, but according to the gondola singers, they told us, the canals in Venice smell really bad and I have heard that from some of my friends that have visited. So, I had the best of both worlds.  I got to feel like I was in Venice Italy without having to smell the canal.

I took this photo from a little Mexican restaurant at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas, a few years back. It was shortly after 911 and there were very few tourists there at the time. I loved staying at this Hotel.  I had just gotten a new car so I wanted to take it out on the road and see if it was all it was advertised to be.  It was!

Certain printing papers I use in my printer, give different effects.  I used this Kodak paper in my Epson printer and the ink just lays on top for the longest time and then it spreads, giving the picture an aged and diffused look, more like the photos from the 60's.  I like it for this particular application, but it is not my go to printing paper.

I will be sending this to my family members that love to go to Vegas.

It was fun to make!!  For the backing I used PTI stampers select white 110 lb# and the designs down the middle are pillows from the PTI "On the coach" set and the sentiment on the front is from the same set. with canyon clay ink. I drew the lines with a matching gel pen.

I hope you like my post card.
