Did you know that stamps can tell a story in a comic strip way? For this swap you need four stamps (at the very very least!) and you will combine them into a story. In the image above, you have pen and ink + Astrid Lindgren (a writer) + printer = people reading a book. You could even create a recipe this way, if you're lucky enough to have all the ingredients displayed on separate stamps! Or play with it: How about a stamp with Lincoln on it + stamp with man ploughing fields + produce/produce being sold/eaten. For this swap:

  1. Create a story with 4 stamps (minimum), which
  2. you will paste onto a card/sheet of paper
  3. tell your story, either by description or adding a caption to each stamp.
  4. Rating is not on how "good" the story is, but on the flow of the story from one stamp to another. Too much writing means not enough stamps

Great idea for a swap. Not enough lead time for me though. :)
