I joined a Postcard Swap at ArtPapers Online. I found them fund to make then mailed each one to a list of 10 people who's names I received. I used napkins as a base on my cards after spraying acrylic seal on them, the papers was handmade so it needed to be seal before using wet medium on them. I also used some images that I had in my stash and ones I bought from Dover publishers and used my watercolor pencils to color them, instead of water I used iridescent medium to set the watercolor pencils. Then I stamped and embossed some and just stamped on others. I wanted to share them with you. I think I want to do this again they were a lot of fun to do.
