Postcards - All 30 of them!

I promised a textured postcard swap with Debbi Baker, who does some wonderful work, for the end of June.
So I started experimenting last week - and got a bit carried away.
I ended up with 30 postcards!
So, if anyone else would like to swap, or if you would just like me to send you one in particular, then leave a comment and make sure I can reply to your comment by email and I will contact you for your snail mail address.
Needless to say the colours are all much nicer than in the photographs.

I'm up for a swap, if you'd like. One of those lace ones would be great.

They really are wonderful Lynda, and there are so many of them!!I fancy the turquoise ones the most!! It is such a great combination of colours. I will trade with you, I send you a grab-bag back. Although, when I see this I also want to make cards....
Debbi shall be very pleased.

Really wonderful, congratulations!

Carol said...

Wow!!! these are so lovely Linda. I love them all, but especially the blue ones.

Susan D said...

Now we all know where you've been hiding yourself for the past 2 weeks. It's hard to choose they are all so nice, maybe no 9,10 or 11, or there again 21, 22 and 27 are nice as well. I'd be chuffed to get anything you pick.

StegArt said...

I would love to trade a card with you Lynda! I'm totally in love with all of them, but really partial to numbers 23, 24, or 25.

Doreen G said...

Well Lynda what a busy girl you have been-I'm up for a sqap too--I love the blue ones at the start and thr red/blue ones (well that's what they are on my computer)in the middle.Slow down girl.

Doreen G said...

I said before I was up for a squap--how about a swap as well--does that mean I have to send 2 postcards--he he.

Debbi B said...

Oh Lynda - could I have one of these postcards too? I can send you ATC's or another Dotee doll if you would like one.

You are so generous to do this!
Would be happy with any of them but love the turquoise ones.

MargaretR said...

I would love to swap too Lynda if I may please? I love the colours from 15 to 20 best I think, but any one of the others will do just as well as they are all so beautiful.

Waltraud said...

So wonderful - the texture and the colour - great!

these are gorgeous, great work.
Isn't it nice when you get carried away with what you're doing?

Peggy said...

Great,wonderfull! I would love to trade a card with you.

Barbara B. said...

Oh, the cards are so wunderfull. And the colores are so fantastic.

Elizabet said...

How did you do the first few ones? The scrim? I've been trying to work this technique out for a while now.

katelnorth said...

Darn - looks like I've been pipped at the post in terms of getting ahold of one of these cards, but still, wanted to leave a comment to say how much I like them...

Sue Wild said...

Can see that it was easy to get carried away with these postcards, the textural effect looks absolutely lovely and the colours are gorgeous.

I'm guessing that you use some PVA and paint over the lace or scrim? Would like to know how you achieve the effects or is it a "trade secret"?

Regards

Sue
