I've been organising a running Alphabetica postcard swap since January. Here are some of the postcards I've made for the first 10 letters of the swap. Forgot to take pictures of all the postcards :-(
A for Art combined a gesso and Quink background with a friendly plastic embellishment and some scraps left over from another project. 'Art' is stamped and heat embossed.
A for Abstract is another gesso and Quink background, with another friendly plastic embellishment, and painted 'A' and some stick on letters.
E for Entrepreneurs - the Cavalieri Brothers - love this stamp. Background is grungepaper - hate this stuff - with colourwash sprays and stamped texture.
E for eclectic, eccentric Esmerelda. More grungepaper, with stamping, a painted letter and stick on letters.
F for Fish. A painted and stamped background, and my favourite oriental Koi stamp in gold.
F for Fossil. Painted and sprayed backgrounds, stamped Fred Mullet fossil fish.
D for Damsel - grungepaper again, with an alcohol ink background for the Enchanted Ink image, which was stamped onto acetate with purple Stazon and backed with gold.
D for Dragonfly - more grungepaper, stamped with a Stampers Anonymous dragonfly, with an added dragonfly embellishment made of polymer clay coated with PearlEx.
I for Ice - pearlescent background and stamped letters coated with several layers of clear embossing powder with a little glitter mixed in, bent to crack it, and a few pearlescent snowflakes for good measure.
I for Inclusions - handmade paper with flower and leaf inclusions, and a variety of inclusions trapped behind gauze.
J for Jilted - Distress inks background, with a painted letter, stamped word, and stamped Crafty Individuals image.
J for Joined. Embossed cardstock with a thin coat of Brilliance ink, layered with gold vellum and a stamped image, with added golden hearts.
