    The Great DIY Postcard Swap (Part 2)

    Just wanted to share some of the postcards from a Mail Art project; Hanna's DIY Postcard Swap! You can see the first phase of the cards at Part One. I started with sheets of bristol paper, painted them with a brayer and Speedball Water-Based Block Printing Inks, cut to ~ 4.5 x 6.5" cards. I made artist trading cards, several with hand sewing, with the remaining scrap paper. Stamped w/handmade eraser stamps, found stamps, added images + words, some neocolors, doodles, personal notes on the reverse, and off to the post office in envelopes (late, I might add).

    Love how layered they are, with the bubble wrap print on top of images etc. and those words peeking through, making my brain go: what? What's the message here? Thanks for sharing them Tammy!

    *Jeannine, The swap was fun, but there is always, always, more art to be created.

    *Hanna, Yes, they have multiple messages and the fun part is that you can really make them say whatever you wish. Thank you for coordinating the swap!!!
