Gingersnap Postcard Art Swap

I recently participated in Gingersnap Creations' first art swap - a 4 for 4 postcard swap. Our theme was "Party" in honor of the Gingersnap Creations blog's 1-year birthday.  My little card featured the "Party Hat" stamp from Stampington.  I colored her with Copics, cut her out, and adhered her to my background.  For the background I layered several other festive stamps (Stampington, Inkadinkado), along with a strip of vintage sheet music and some vintage pleated pink trim. The sentiment is computer-generated.

This was my very first art swap by mail... the only other thing I've ever swapped is ATCs with my local club, so this was a new experience for me.  Let me tell you... I am so thrilled with the fabulous art I've received in this swap!  I will definitely do it again.  Many thanks to Shar, Ali, Debby, and Gerrie, whose postcards I received.  These women are fabulously talented, and I will always treasure their beautiful art.  Thanks so much ladies!

Fun postcard! Love how you added the large polkadots. They add a great touch with the hat image.

So excited! I just got one of your postcards in my art exchange packet! It is sooo pretty! The more I look at it, the more detailing I see. I just noticed the definition layered into the background! Thanks tons!
