Next time, this swap is getting a shorter title!! :-)

Here is round 4 for those who are in this swap. :-) I know some of you ended up with your own PC back in round 2 and 3 (ugh) and if there was a way I could guarantee that didn't happen, I would. If I do this type of swap again, I will only post the actual swap once and then take the sending order into the group forum to prevent it. In the meantime, if you get your own card back again, please treat it as you would any other and do your stuff on it and send it out, :-) thanks ladies! I hope your all enjoying the swap otherwise!

In round 1, 8 of us sent out our postcards with our chosen backgrounds done on them.

For this round, we will now choose from the lists of techniques and applications found below to add to the postcards we received.

In round 3 and subsequent rounds you will look at the back of the card to see what applications and techniques have been used already. From the list below choose one application and one technique that haven't been used and apply them to the card.

Put your name, the date and what application and technique you applied to the card in the appropriate space on the back of the card. Cover over your address with your partners address and send forth. :)

The last person to add to the card will choose any unused application and technique from the list, apply them to the card and send the card home to the owner.

Some Inspiration Ideas:


Plastic bag printing

Napkin transfer

Gelli plate printing (on other paper or directly on the card)

Stamp with ink or paint using a random household object

Freehand painting w/ acrylic

Apply some watercolour paint

Tape transfer


Apply a rub on or (as an alternative maybe a carefully chosen sticker)

Apply some color with either Gelatos, Pastels, or crayons. (On other paper or directly on the card)

Use a resist technique

Apply some texture with modelling paste, thick gesso or other method


Rubber stamp image

Glue magazine or book image

Add several dots

Add at least one circle in any medium

Add an arrow

Draw 3 lines

Rub ink on the edges

Add a letter either with paint or ink

Add 3 stars

Add found word or phrase

Add a symbol ($,&,@,*,%,#,¥,£, etc)

Add a small embellishment or two (keep these flat)

Add paint or ink using a stencil or piece of sequin waste

I'm going to allow only the same 8 people who signed up for round 1 to join this and subsequent rounds. This is to prevent this from going on too long and to see how this is all going to work.
