Three more cards




I've completed three more trading cards. The top one has my hand painted paper as a background, then I added a painted tag, with corrugated cardboard, handmade paper and a small piece of some fabric I'd painted sometime ago and topped it off with some electrical resistors.
The second one was a terrific image I found of US mail boxes in a very old National Geographic, one of the doors was open so I added an Aussie stamp with a possum on it, then added text and a tag.
The third one is made up of the inside of envelopes made into a patchwork with postage stamps added. The heart and other stamps were carved from erasers.
