I’m slowly adding to my handmade postcard collection 🙂 I’ve done a couple of swapbot swaps recently and received beautiful cards.
Handmade postcard swap:
Sent to UK
Freehand machine embroidered owl. I’m not sure what it is about his face that makes him look so daft…
Received from Australia
I think this is decoupage paper, paint, stamped shapes and collage on board. It’s a lovely card. And if I made people smile today it’s because my bicycle riding is wobbly enough to be amusing…
Washi tape patchwork postcard
Sent to Australia
The colours look off in the photo, but it’s a stripey and partially woven basic design. The swap required that the tape was protected somehow, so there’s a layer of glue as a varnish.
Received from Canada
More imaginative than my creation, washi tape with marker pen decoration, protected with sticky tape.
I’m planning to make more handmade cards (and more owls) sometime, but there are so many things I’d like to make at the moment!
