My mailart 365 pal andytgeezer posted his Chichester pen vs. cut postcard and I'm in love and want to try it. Would you like to try it with me?

Take a postcard, photo or any postcard sized image and do this ...

Cut out a chunk. Keep both pieces and adhere them to a white background. Draw in the missing bits.

This is great drawing practice/exercise and less sweaty than zumba.

Here is a larger image of andytgeezer's postcard

You will send both postcards out - 1 to 2 different partners.

You can draw or paint or use some combination of the two to complete your missing bits.

If you have questions, just comment below.

Be awesome.

Send naked unless you know you have troubles then pop them into envelopes.

Include your name and the name of the swap to ensure rating ease.

Be sure to rate after you receive.

I still can't post images today. I'll try again another day.

Great swap concept, Angie! Thanks for hosting!

I haven't had an image issue, but over the last 2 days I've stopped receiving email notifications for new messages, profile comments and swaps. ಠ_ಠ

Oh, yeah. Me too now that you mention it.

Ooh! Love this idea!

Wow, that is such a neat idea.

Well, I finished. Be brave. Share a link to your creation. I'd like to try a city scene like Andy's but I tried this bird instead. Check it out
