I decided to discard my first attempt at making a postcard. I wasn’t happy with my choice of papers, nor with the writing. I had used a gel pen with metallic ink and it simply didn’t show up well enough – even though I had gone over the writing several times.
The inspiration for the card I posted came from looking at those made by other participants. That gave me an idea of what might work and gave me the nudge I needed to try again. My finished postcard was nowhere near as exotic or beautiful as many of those made by others in the group but I have just about managed to not be too downhearted about it. I was trying something new so it’s OK that it didn’t turn out as well as some others.
Upon returning from seeing my Little Sis, I found this lovely card which had been made for me by Carol, had arrived. She asks on the reverse if I can spot the deliberate ‘mistake’. Well, unless it’s that the ‘T’s haven’t been crossed, I have no idea what the mistake might be!
I also found this interesting postcard made by Myfanwy Hart, our swap mistress. I think, because of a comment Myfanwy made, that some of the elements may have been damaged or lost in transit. However it has still given me inspiration.
