what a fun thing to do! Question for you...on the first three postcards what did you do around the edges to make it darker?  I've seen on some inchies and altered puzzles the darker edges and was wondering how one did that?  Is is stamp pads?  I'm not really a paper crafter..not cause I don't like it..just don't really know how and love the darker edges on the paper crafts and stuff. 

Really cute postcards.. Grin

It's totally stamp pads! I'm a fan of the colorbox chalk ink queues to do those edges. I use the colorbox pigment inkpads, too, but they dry really slowly and you have to let em sit for a while. The chalk inks dry nice and quick! It's my favorite Smiley

These are some postcards I made today. For some strange reason I was in a nautical mood today Smiley

Starting off with my squid. I decided that he should have his tentacles lose so they gave more of a feeling to them Smiley

This is a close up of him Smiley


Then this is my octopus who has been scared by an anchor, made out of pipe cleaners.


I hope you all enjoy them Smiley

I have been finishing up some other swaps this week so I am just now finally sitting down to make mine today. I will post them later as I finish some.

And Kira, thank you so much for that cute little monster postcard! I just loved it when I first saw it!
