QoF -- I really like that card.  The little coins you've put on the 2 cards we've seen so far are really neat, and I love the papers you are using.

Thanks!

I have received two wonderful cards.  The first is from lulubean:

The story on the back is so cute- lulubean and her husband snapped the photo in Muir woods on their honeymoon and had it turned into a stamp.  The map in the background is of the same woods with the trail marked that they hiked on.

The second card is from cjsachiko called Wildflowers:


The cards are both beautiful, thank you so much.

Neat! And I know this makes me the mother of all dorks, but I love how the color schemes make them look good together!

Here's the card I sent sewknitter.  I called it "Dreamscape" because I wanted to dive right into the card and take the trip of my dreams.



The map is from an atlas I bought at a thrift store, and the bits to the left are several papers (various texts and some music) that I collaged, painted, stamped and embossed.  After combining them with the map, I wiped those two parts with a bright pink ink to tie them together, and then I added the stamp (chosen entirely for its color).  The larger background is from an Arabic newspaper page I got in a swap from Alteredmommy.  I painted it pink.  The bright red/orange edges on both pieces were done Racky-style with an ink pad just to tie the two pieces together a bit more.

The butterfly paper on the back (not pictured) that sewknitter mentioned in description of the card was added to cover up a number of sins.  Wink
