The last couple posts (here and here), I have been showing off the postcards that have graced my mailbox this month. Today, I wanted to share the ones that I created to bring some artsy sunshine to others.

I designed each postcard on pre-cut watercolor paper postcards. I used a feather stencil to monoprint each card on my gelli arts printing plate. After that I just chose different stamps and other ephemera to embellish each card. I used acrylic paints with some stazon ink for the stamps. For the finishing touch, I glued sticker words to each card. To fill in the colors after the monoprinting, I used brushes, my fingers and a brayer. Sometimes I wiped off paint with a baby wipe. I really just had fun and used techniques that I have been playing with over the past year or so!

Hi Kel!, thanks for joining the swap and sharing your pretty postcards.

I tried visiting yesterday, but couldn't because the site was down, but now when i tried today here you are. Love the robot card extra much! And the dymo tape lables are a perfect addition to your mixed media cards. :-)

Take care!

The robot figure is my favorite. I really love all your works. I have been browsing your site and I must say most of your works are impressive. They make the viewer relive their elementary days. It allowed everyone to release their creative side. They would all be like "I didn't know it can be done". It is very beautiful.

My first sold card and all patterns of the use of the regular life are eye important and tremendous. It is implied and exemplified. It is the research and motives of the right and instilled. It is the actual and factual for all plans and schemes.
