Damsel in Distress Altered Postcard

This is the fifth and final postcard in the series I made for the Alpha Stamps “Wish You Were Here” postcard swap.  The overall dimensions of the postcard are 4 ¼” x 5 ½”.  I decided to have some fun with this one.  I’m a big fan of the old science fiction and fantasy movies; the cheesier the better.  So here we have our damsel innocently sitting in a boat at night (first mistake) completely unaware of the monsters descending upon her.
On the back the handsome hero rescues the girl just in time.  You are probably wondering why the girl on the front and the girl on the back aren’t the same.  Well, in these movies someone always bites it in the beginning.
In addition to decorating the postcards we were also supposed to come up with fun addresses that fit the artwork.  So this one is:
Damsel in Distress
Just In Time Lane
The Black Lagoon
