Shannon at Musings on Realities is currently hosting an international postcard swap!
For the swap, we each made ten postcards to send out into the world by February 20.
Today's post is a gallery of the cards I sent to my swap partners.
I used the painted tags that I posted about earlier (created in response to Dina Wakley's Creative Jump Start idea), and then went a little crazy with additional rub-ons and stitching to complete each card. Some included lace and ribbon, as well.
I went to the post office this morning to get them out, and now the cards are on their way to various U.S. states, as well as Scotland, New Zealand, Canada, and Australia.
And hopefully some beautiful mail art will be on its way to me very shortly!
It is so fun to know that the mail over the next month or so is likely to hold something much more exciting and beautiful than a bill or a Clipper magazine!
I sewed the fronts and backs of the postcards together with the sewing machine, rather than gluing them together as I usually do. This meant that my less-than-tidy stitching lines showed up on the back. I actually thought it added a pretty touch of color!
Many thanks to Shannon for organizing this fun swap!
