This swap is a variation of the one I just ran in the Handmade Postcard Club, in which you were challenged to pick a word from your partner's profile and make a postcard displaying that word. But instead of a word, this time it's an image.
Here's the deal: read your partner's profile, and let your mind be open to image associations. For example, if your partner says she lives in Florida, you might think "flamingoes." Or if your partner says she likes "The Ghostbusters," you might think "marshmallows." Or it might be straightforward: she says she likes vintage themes, so you go with that.
And then...make a cut-paper collage postcard which includes that image. You can put just that one image on the postcard, or you might add a bunch of others. You can add additional media, like paint or rubber stamps, to your collage. The only thing you have to do is make a collage with an image that popped in your head while reading your partner's profile.
Put a short note on the back explaining why you chose that image, if it's not really obvious. Mail it naked. And be sure to have fun! =smile=
