my mother went to venice

over at the sunday postcard art blog, this week's challenge was to create a 4x6" postcard about italy. my mother went to venice and snapped this beautiful photo of one of the canals. she used a panoramic angle, so the pic is actually much taller than what i cropped for this postcard. she wrote a story about her trip "lost in venice" on her blog.

on to translucent paper i printed a gondolier cartoon from the internet (who'da thunk that would come up in a search). i translated a few words into italian online, then added the little accents.

i'm looking forward to seeing what their challenge will be tomorrow! meanwhile, this little ditty is destined for mom's fridge...
