Text ATC swap

Text ATC 1 Text ATC 2 Text ATC 3

All of the cards made for this swap had to include text. It could be quotes, poetry, anything, so long as it was text. I think that if I am going to make three different cards to go to one person then I should try three different things.

After spending heaps on stamps and stuff at the Stitches and Craft Show then the first card got a text stamp using embossing powder. For those who were kind enough to suggest that my cooking might be effected by putting the embossing powder in the oven, I have found that my toaster works very well just by holding the paper over the slot. It has a reset button to turn it off when the embossing powder has done its thing.

The second card has printed text on it. I found the cat saying on a web site that has lists of all sorts of text associated with cats. I printed it using Word using coloured text on a coloured background. I will probably end up with a million cat related rubber stamps.

I wanted the last card to be hand written text. To make it more personal, I used one of my own haikus and an original watercolour. I suppose that it qualfies as a haiga.

The cards are already winging their way across the Pacific to my swap partner in the US.

Oh, I really like these cards. I didn't notice but are you using card stock for these? Also, what about envelopes? This has really inspired me to create some cards for close friends.
