Inspired by iHanna's postcard swap, I set up my own postcard swap in Israel. The turnout was fantastic, and we were each supposed to make 5 postcards. However, I decided to make 70, to thank all the participants, and I wanted to share the process of making all those cards here, because I just had so much fun making them!
This was my first batch:
And this is how I made them: I took a huge piece of white cardstock, and sprayed it. I love how unexpected the results are, and I tried spraying from close up, farther away, shaking up the bottles, so I came up with interesting backgrounds!
When I was done just spraying the paper, I began spraying through stencils:
This is what my sheet looked like at this stage:
And from farther away:
I ramdomly stamped with distress inks, and then cut up the large sheet into postcard size bits:
At this stage I added stamping with Stazon, to complete the postcard and make it stand on its own.
I then added some inking to frame the postcards, and backed them with scrapbooking paper, and off we went, my son and I, to post them:
Since I enjoyed the process so much, I decided to make dozens more!
It was a great opportunity for me to use my stamps, because I mostly hoard them, but hardly ever use them!
So I started again, working on 4 large sheets this time:
I tried to make small pictures using the stamps, and I absolutely love the result! They do look like little pictures, and I'm going to frame one to keep! I won't bore you with dozens of pictures, but here are some of my favorites:
Which one did you like best?! :0)
