Almost back on track

It's amazing what a morning off can do! I have got my overdue March swaps complete and wrapped ready to post. The fact that they were probably still slightly damp and the PO isn't open today so they haven't actually left the buidling doesn't matter does it???

To demonstrate to the very forgiving and patient members of the swap group that I'm not making it up, here are the alphabetica postcards for letters E and F. I don't know why but E was the most troublesome letter so far. Although the most used letter in English I struggled to come up with themes - at least ones that didn't require investment in new stash - and then struggled to make what was in my head.

These are the fronts, coloured mainly with spray inks onto rather absorbent card. Soft colours and mica sheen - not that you can tell from these snaps.

And on the backs... E is embossed with punched border and letters underneath sticky backed metal sheet, with embossing powders and alcohol ink on top.

F is made from different patterned papers shaded with coloured pencils and with a tiny bit of stamping.
