In April I joined in a Spring Card Swap hosted by Kerry at Handmade Success. The deal was, make a card or buy a handmade card and send it snail mail to your allotted partner. Done and done.
This was a nice change for me as I don’t usually make cards, I have printed photos onto cards, but I don’t paint or write or paint and write on cards. I do now! I had such fun using the brush script technique to paint on lots of cards. Firstly painting and writing through a pile of paper to warm up my brush and brain.
My partner was Kerry from Handmade Success (no pressure then) and I made her a brush script card. Or rather I made lots with various words and phrases and picked the one I liked best. I ruined one by trying to be cute with washi tape. Fail. Keep it simple stupid was the lesson learnt there methinks.
So thanks to Kerry for organising the swap and I am already looking forward to making more cards! I have decided to send more cards and letters in the mail too. Yay!
Happy Wednesday. x
