Observant readers might have noticed that in my pink postcard post I only featured five out of the ten postcards I made for the DIY Postcard Swap I host. So let’s take a look at the rest of the altered vintage postcards today.
Most of them have more blue than pink, hence the title of this post. The last two are predominantly blue, which is a bit unusual for me. It’s not that I don’t like blue, because I do, it’s just not what I’m drawn to when I paint. But as you will see blue can be incorporated in my style more… And like I mentioned before, I see each postcard as a canvas for experimentation…
I hope that the recipients were happy when they got one of these in their mail box. I know I was happy when I made them, and I think most of them turned out pretty good. I left the vintage backside “as is”, so you can read where in Sweden the motif was photographed originally and see the yellowed paper, which I really like.
Thanks for visiting my blog and if you like my postcards, leaving me a comment below! You can also check out the postcard link up post, where other participants of the swap has posted links to their mail art. Lots of yummy stuff there.
I’m sharing the postcards I received over on Studio iHanna on Facebook. Like my page there, and you’ll be notified there when I post something.
