I just recently bought a pack of postcard-sized watercolour sheets, and I'm loving sending out handpainted postcards!

For this swap you'll paint or draw your own postcard and send it to one partner. Unless your partner's profile specifically requests postcards be sent in an envelope, send postcard naked (without an envelope).


You can start painting or drawing your postcard today so you can send as soon as partners are assigned. There is no theme this time but please make something that you would like to receive with time and effort put in to it. The swap photo is one of my previously sent postcards. You do not need to be an artist to participate - just put your love into your work and have fun being creative!

There is no rating filter applied and newbies are allowed, but I will be checking profiles to make sure there aren't any problem swappers.

Please rate a 5 if you receive a handmade postcard even if it isn't your preferred style. I will angel if you do not receive a postcard from your swap partner.

This will be my first time hosting a swap so please go easy on me! Let me know if you have any questions, and have fun!

how about postcards made from your own photos? I love making postcards thru both vistaprint and Zazzle Regards Glennys

For this swap, it's intended to be hand drawn or painted, not just printed - though that's a great idea for a future swap!

is it allowed to send the postcard in an envelope? since october can be a wet month

I'd intended for them to be sent without an envelope, however if you have had issues of things getting damaged due to weather then use an envelope if you think it's necessary! :)
