Sunday Postcard Art – Travel

We have caught the Travel bug over at Sunday Postcard Art this week.

These days we travel with such ease and with little thought; we can jump on an aer0plane and be anywhere in the world in 24 hours, even from Australia (although Melbourne to New York may be closer to 36 hours). Even with cars we can travel amazing distances in a short amount of time; last year we drove 3,000km in 5 days to attend a family funeral (and we barely covered the bottom half of Australia!)

But before these travel luxuries, there were the grand ladies of the sea, taking you to all corners of the globe, over several leisurely weeks. It is hard to comprehend how much bigger the world must have seemed back then.

Sunday Postcard Travel - grand ships

Map paper from wrapping paper. All stamped were stamped in Staz-On Saddle Brown ink. Word stamps from Limited Edition and postcard stamp by Stamp Francisco. I am ashamed to say that I don’t know who manufactured the fantastic plate of ship stamps; one of those times that I didn’t write the company name down straight away and now it’s forgotten. If you know who made these stamps, I’d love to hear from you.

Hope you fare well on your travels this week!

  1. Great card. I love the stamp of the ship. I never saw it before.


  2. Lovely card, Michelle! And I´ve loved your comment telling about Staycations, I´ve never heard of that concept. But I very much enjoyed Anne Tyler´s novel “The Accidental Tourist” (and the movie with William Hurt and Geena Davis!) about a man who´s writing tourist guides for people who prefer staying at home!


  3. Really beautiful stamps.
    Great idea and your travel postcard is wonderful.


  4. Wow – this is very impressive!
    Stunning work.
