Description:

Do you like carving stamps or doing linocuts/ linoprinting?

I hope to find some more people who share that hobby! As linoprinting and rubber stamping easily enables you to do several copies, every participant will have 2 swap partners if enough people join into the swap.

You make a postcard for each swap partner. For making that postcard, you use a linocut or stamps you carved yourself. Make sure to work in a way that makes the card look well-balanced.

You can send your art-postcard in an envelope for protection if necessary. But if it's sufficiently sturdy, you may also send it like a normal postcard.

Theme and colours are sender's choice, so you can start crafting straight away. Do your best, please!

Open to newbies as well - if you can carve stamps or linoleum, you are welcome to this swap. I don't want to angel, but am willing to do so if necessary.

The swap-picture shows a linoprint-postcard I made for a Postcrossing Meetup in September.

For all those watching: Would you prefer to have less swap-partners? Maybe just 2? I will give it a try.
