Hello everyone :0) For this swap I would like everyone to make postcards using a stamp of a person as the focal point. For example a gorjuss girl stamp.

I would love it if everyone will recycle their cereal/cracker boxes to make these works of art. make a lovely background using any medium you love, collage, paints.... Stamp your person on a separate piece of paper or card stalk color cut and paste. decorate as you like and put a little saying or tittle to go with the picture. Seal it with modgpodge.

I also believe that postcards should be sent naked, so write on the back to your partner put their address and a stamp and send it off.

I always enjoy making multiples of items like these so i am giving everyone three partners. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to pm me :0)

Happy creating everyone!!

Oh wow, I thought you meant postage stamp at first. I am glad you clarified that we are stamping the female image.

I thought the same as you, @AZmom875 I have people/face postage stamps & face rubber stamps... now to dig through and see if I have people rubber stamps!

:oD Yeah, I thought it might need clarifying, there are all sort of stamps with people on them in this world of ours :0)

So you want us to use the cereal box as the background? Or just as a strong surface? I am a little confuse. Do you have a picture you can show? Thanks!

BTW I LOVE these type of swaps!

cereal box or other stronger than card stalk type material, I don't have a picture but I figured I would say or other type of material incase someone has something I cant think of.. :0)

SO sorry for the late assigning partners :0)

I just wanted to let you know I mailed mine off but didn't seal with mod podge--I sealed it with Distress Micro Glaze by Ranger. It's supposed to be water proof, so this is a test!! I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks on my post cards, so mod podge would have interacted with the inks and smeared everything. :) This was a fun one to do! Thank you!
