Postage stamps - please write


The Three Muses' theme this week is postage stamps.

I started off with a black and white image of the woman and then changed her dress into material made from postage stamps. I lightly coloured the rest of her and then set her upon the script background, adding the air mail label and envelope frame. It seemed to me that she was waving goodbye to someone, hence the words 'please write'.
