4x6 Gauche Gal Swap

Following on from the 4" x 6" swap
organised by the Brooklyn Art Library,
some of us Gauche gals decided to 
swap postcards among ourselves.
We used Swap-Bot and didn't know the
 identity of our recipient until the day 
before it had to be sent off.

I was 'given' 
to send to which I was pleased 
about because she likes vintage 
looking artwork. I had made this butterfly 
postcard for the swap and hoped 
that she would like it.

I sent it in this Mail Art envelope.

Marilyn received it, posted about it on 
Facebook and she seemed pretty happy :o)

Now, I received this postcard from

How cool is this?!
I LOVE the textures, colours
and the way Jenn has done the wording.
Clever, yes?

I am VERY happy with my 4x6,
thank you so much Jenn :o)

Both are just lovely. How serendipitous of you to get Marilyn and what a perfect postcard for her :)

Am just chuckling at your comments over there about 'that' book. Must admit I am not in the slightest tempted!

So glad you liked the 4x6 you received--it was fun to do such a small project and then send it out into the world :)

Your butterfly is gorgeous, ditto the envelope. And your received postcard is great, love the wording she has used. Valerie

I particularly love the butterfly image Jo. I must like art with a vintage flavour.

In the mountains near Telluride at a place called Ouvay. Love the envelope you made and depth of PC.

Terri Neggers said...

I love the one you made, and the one you got! On yours, I just love the background, and the butterfly turned out so well. Is it a transfer?

Terri said...

This is a really fab post card! I am sure your recipient loved it. Even the envy is wonderful!
Jennifer's art is amazing as well.
