Happy Little Post Card

Deb of Learning to Just Breath and I have been exchanging post cards for well over a year now.  It has been so much fun to receive her's as she is such a diverse artist......all our post cards are hand made and we try to recycle as much materiel as possible.

This one is winging it's way east already.  I chose to use a piece of watercolor paper I had "played" with at last weeks paint party, to show the young-ungs stencils. I thought it a good choice as it is mostly acrylic paint, and with the weather has been erratic in all parts of the nation, is waterproof.  I did add some swirls and whirls with StazOn ink (waterproof too) and the Happy New Year is stamped with paint.  This is adhered to a scrap of white cardboard form my stash. I wrote the year with a paint pen.

There are quite a few Mixed Media challenges running this month.......such yummy stuff to behold at these sites.
Here are the ones I want to enter this post card in:

Grab our Badge
challenge: Anything Goes

January challenge


Stamps and Stencils

Now I'm sure there are many more, but these are the ones I chose for now, and maybe I'll get more entries made.  I do hope you will take a moment and visit them to see wonderful DT work and some fantastic entries.


  1. Great card, and a lovely idea to swap with Deb. Hugs, Valerie

  2. I love your recycled postcard for Deb - I bet she will love it! I smiled about your thoughts about waterproof colors for those wet time!
    Happy rest of the week dear Krisha!

  3. I love the postcards that you and Deb exchange. They are clever and, since they are recycled, speak to me.

    I had a friend who sent I used to exchange postcards with. One such altered postcard she sent me, she didn't adhere the "altered" part well. When I received it, the front was blank and you could see where the glue had been applied. I had to laugh, but never told her it had arrived defective. Yours is truly lovely and timely, too.

  4. HI Krisha!!! AAwwww i'll be looking for it!!! :) Its suppose to start raining here tonight for 4-5 days so all that weatherproofing was a good idea. LOL ! I just love how abstract you can be.... I have such trouble with that.... There is one on the way to you too... I hope everything stays stuck down!!! Hugs! deb

  5. This is really lovely. I love all the beautiful layers.

  6. I always enjoy seeing the postcards you and Deb exchange. You have a great thing going. I'm going to check out the mixed media sites you mention. I really need to get back into art.

  7. I am loving the colors on this one, what a great postcard!

    May have to check out some of those challenges . . .


  8. There's such lovely depth to those layers - a very happy New Year to you, Krisha!
