CHALLENGE: How ugly can you make the back of a postcard?

You will send 1 store bought postcard naked to 2 different partners (sender's choice). Now for the fun part. Decorate / write on the back of the postcard, but make as many mistakes as you would like. Here are some ideas:

  • smudging ink or stamps (do not smudge the swap name or your user ID!)
  • washi tape that is not placed straight
  • bad color matching
  • not writing in a straight line
  • stickers that are folded over the edge
  • purposefully make drawing or writing mistakes
  • scribble out errors
  • messed up stenciling
  • running out of room when writing
  • ink bleeding from water drops, etc.
  • anything else you can think of

All the above are not required, just have FUN making a poorly decorated postcard. Feel free to showcase some of your pet peeve crafting fails so your partner will laugh when they see all your mistakes.

Newbies with well filled out profiles are welcome to join. You should have no recent unexplained 3 or 1 ratings. Also, PLEASE do not forget to write the swap name and your ID on the back. If you have any questions feel free to send me a message. Let the fun begin!

Hummm….I smudge ink just by being left-handed, lol.

I still can't use a date stamp without smudging it! :(
