Old Photo Postcard – Rome – Stamp

Click on images to enlarge

This beautiful postcard from Italy was sent in by a very sweet reader named Summer! The card shows the Colosseum in Rome. It has such nice sepia tones!

She was even kind enough to send the back of the card as well! As you can see above, I played with the stamp a bit in Photoshop, to give you a little something extra! These would all be wonderful to use in Collage or Mixed Media Projects! Thank you Summer!!

  9. What a lovely postcard. I enjoyed reading the message on the back, too. Thsoe kinds of things always make me wonder what happened to the person who wrote the card, and the person who received it? What kind of lives did they go on to live? Very nice. Thanks for sharing these. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
