So I'm in a swap in another forum and I'm concerned that my submissions may not be good (or artistic) enough.  This is the first card I made for the swap, so let me know what you think. 



This is a postcard I made for the Postcrossing thing.  I don't think those people will be as picky, but I thought I would get opinions anyway.

I really like the ATC! Lovely use of materials. If they don't want it, I'll trade you!  Wink

Thanks!  Seems like I have an abundance of "materials" (some might say "junk") for this type of thing.  I'll let you know if it's rejected....

i know first hand that your stuff is more than good enough, it's GREAT! i love the canada one, and if you have the courage to do the postcard thing maybe i should give it a try also could you pm the forum you're doing the other swap in? i'm officially addicted to mail-art!

Looking to do a personal swap for any boyish nursery print flannels! I can send polymer clay charms, purses, paper crafts, microscope slide pendant kit, and a lot more.

I think they both are great. I really like the torn edgeson the ATC. It makes it more interesting.

I love the ATC best. I'm from Canada so I might be bias but I'd love to have an ATC like that hanging on my wall! I am just getting into making ATC more so I'm always up for trading. Cheesy

The postcard is pretty awesome too - I love those ship stamps! I wish I could find something like that around here. No dice. Sad

Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

I am a rabid ATC fan, and I think that looks really great. I'd be happy to receive it in a swap. Smiley

Thank you all for being so kind!

Actually, I found those images of stamps online and made them the size I wanted with a photo program.  I looked all over for that website again and couldn't find it, but here's another one with boat stamps that are pretty cool.  If I ever find the one I used, I'll post it too.

Thank you all so much!  I'm adding another one that I finished today.  No particular reason I made this one except trying out some new techniques I found in some art books and the fact that I'm into using these little bits and parts (like the eyelets).  I like the way it turned out, though.

I love the first two examples you showed and this new one is my favorite. It is so pretty and I love the uniqueness of the ATC.

If the group says that you're not artistic enough then I think they need to get their heads checked!
