This week it is Kathy's turn to send a postcard to Sammy, Kathy is at home remember and making her postcards from ephemera she has collected on her travels
I made the cherry blossom by handcutting the branches and using pens and ink to colour up the punched blossoms, the background is layered papers and a stamped bamboo image which I have coloured with copics
The back of the postcard reads
The quote on the front of this card is important, please remember this when your parentage is revealed.
I posted your documents on as requested.
Your gentleman called and revealed his name only - Spencer ! He stops by every day in the hope of your return home. I must admit he does seem rather charming.
You asked why I tried to run away - I felt I had no reason to stay home - much like you my dear ! My life had been all but destroyed.
China was not the distraction I had hoped it would be, even the Silk Road adventure I embarked upon failed to banish thoughts of my own personal ruins. The tombs especially, urged me to keep travelling, peace seemed to be impossible to find.
Look after yourself
Love Kathy x
