Swap-Bot – Snail Mail

Card Making Challenge #45

I discovered Swap-Bot from reading a comment on Janette Lanes Pocket Letter site http://www.pocketletterpals.com and it got my curiosity, so I thought I would join to trial it out.

My first snail mail was a card making challenge with circles.  Your swap partner is assigned to you by the co-ordinator, and you make the card according to the template of the event.  I sent a message to my partner letting her know I am her partner and will endeavour to complete the card and send off by a certain date.  Once I have completed the assignment, I mark off the event as “Sent”.  When my swap partner receives my card, I will be rated according to the Swap-Bot system and my swap partner optionally sends me a message.  I like the rating system in that the challenge has been met and any extra ratings is a bonus.  There will be another partner assigned to me and that partner will make a card for me.  I will be given the opportunity to rate the card too.

I swap with Swap-bot!

This is my card I made for my Swap-Bot partner.  I made a matching envelop to go with it.

November Mood Board Challenge

With Jot Magazine

image

Jot magazine has a vibrant mood board challenge for November.

I just love vibrant, happy colours.

It inspired me to create a birthday card for my best, long time friend.

I dabbed acrylic paint to a floral stencil. Painted some shimmer on green and pink parts. Applied a light media paste which I coloured gold through a tear drop stencil. Printed ‘Happy Birthday’ with an elegant swirl on a laser printer and gold foiled with my recently brought Minc. Added a sticker, ribbon and flower.
Loving how it turned out.

I am enjoying using stencils and experimenting with distress inks and acrylic paint.

Thanks Jot Magazine for the mood board challenge.
