iHanna's Annual Postcard Swap

I've been busy working on my postcards for iHanna's annual swap.  It was such fun last year, not only making the cards but waiting for the ones that are mailed to me in return.  How often these days does something fun come in the mail?  If you are interested, it's an international swap and not to late to sign up.  Just click on the iHanna badge on the right of this post.

This year since I was so into my doodles I decided to do a doodle design on each card.  It's been fun, each one is different and original.  I've been using a new pen again, this time trying a fine tip Micron.  I'm pleased with how it works.  It has the easy flow of a felt tip but not the bleed.  Think I'll go back and get a couple more.
I'm just about done, this is such an easy take along project I think I'll continue with the
 idea but use some brown paper bag colored note cards I bought a while ago to
 print on but wouldn't go thru the printer without jamming.  

Hope your week is off to a good start.  Thanks for visiting.

Hugs

These are STUNNING! I really admire people who are so good at doodling, whenever I try, it just looks like a messy scribble :)

Julia Dunnit said...

Your pen and ink work is really fab, it will look great on the brown bag type surface too. When you link to WOYWW, would you include the acronym in your title please? It's a bit hard to know where we're invited to look if there's no distinction. thanks!
