Postage Stamp on
Hand Drawn/Painted Background


Images by minnkel, kasia, minnkel

One postage stamp on a hand-painted or hand-drawn background

I saw the card by kasia and loved the concept. So even though I don't typically run two swaps at once, I HAD to put this one out there. Please restrict yourself to one postage stamp (new or used) on a hand-drawn or hand-painted background. No embellishments or other collage elements.

Originals only. Put each card in its OWN plastic sleeve. If it won't fit in a regular plastic sleeve, then it's too thick for this swap.

The following cards will be returned to the participants at their expense:
* Cards missing an actual postage stamp.
* Cards with other collage elements.
* Cards with something other than a hand-painted or hand-drawn background.
* Cards that are off-theme
* Cards created with little to no thought

I will swap like effort for like effort.


For US participants, please send a good sized return address label or piece of paper with your address written on it (NO envelopes) and enough LOOSE postage for your returns.

For International participants, please send a return address label or piece of paper with your address written on it. A US dollar or postage would be appreciated but is not required.

For all participants, if you have the ability and desire, an extra loose stamp or two will be greatly appreciated.

Your returns are sent in greeting cards with typed labels. I am unable to use stamped envelopes. Please send LOOSE postage.

I love hostess cards especially on theme. Extra postage is also welcome. Please DO NOT SEND collage supples or ephemera. As always, none of these are required.

I strongly encourage participants to tell me which cards they like as I do take that into consideration where possible.

When you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from! I've linked the names below for ease of repping.

Here are my cards, done with colored pencils. Hope you like them:

OOOOO those are awesome!!

03-13-2012, 12:31 PM
I really hesitated posting these to the thread. Especially on Solitary Barn - the scanner didn't get the colors right at all. I even tried 4 different photo software and 3 different scanners!!! Just know.....the colors of the painted field match those on the stamp in the real piece. And the sky on Flowering Prairie is really cool. It just didn't pick up. I've never had such a time on scanning cards before. Even postage stamps on watercolor!

I did another one but I realize since it has music sheet background I may have to leave it out of this swap.

03-19-2012, 07:20 AM
Ooh that looks fantastic sarat!!!!

03-19-2012, 08:02 AM
Sarat, yes, the background must be hand-painted or hand-drawn, not collaged.

04-08-2012, 11:24 AM
Loving that idea!!!

04-09-2012, 11:57 PM
Card 3 - Young Fashion.
My attempt at drawing a figure, LOL!, but I am quite pleased with it. Yeah, yeah, I know, 'self-praise no praise'. Touched up w watercolor crayon. This is pencil drawn, all black and white. Even the jacket is watercolor white crayon. Jacket was slit to accommodate the bling bling.

04-10-2012, 06:56 AM
Is the "bling bling" a stamp? It's hard to tell.

04-10-2012, 08:00 AM
Looks like the 2 cent stamp to me.

04-10-2012, 10:10 AM
ceejay is right. It is a US 2 cent stamp - Navajo Jewelery.

04-10-2012, 10:12 AM
Yay ... what's my prize ??? LOL

04-10-2012, 10:15 AM
What would you like? anything origami is fine with me. LOL! 2 cent postage stamp not common in US? How come Norabear not familiar with it? Norabear?

04-10-2012, 12:04 PM
I'm familiar with it but the picture looked black and white, as if the actual stamp wasn't used. I just needed to check.

04-10-2012, 12:10 PM
I was just kidding ... no prize please. I just love it when the hostess pays attention. I quite agree ... the photo looks b&w ... but I just recognized the design.

04-11-2012, 10:03 AM
Cruising Along: watercolor crayon, hand/drawn seashells, seaweeds, postage stamp of Fish

Going postal tomorrow.

04-11-2012, 04:25 PM

04-18-2012, 07:52 PM
I guess that the snail has approval :D(adding all those dots to his shell and body just about drove me crazy - can I claim RSI from making cards?:)). My cards will be in the mail today.

I just happened upon this thread. First, great concept for a swap, Nora! What clever and beautiful cards have been posted. This is inspiring me to try this technique, maybe for an art-athon some time.

04-24-2012, 10:09 AM
That's a cool idea complicious! I have soooo many more stamps :D

04-24-2012, 04:07 PM
Use any postage stamp you like, new or used, US or International.

04-27-2012, 01:00 AM
Wow. Great cards ArtyD. I especially like the kangaroo.

04-27-2012, 04:04 AM

Here's pics of my cards. You can tell I was very inspired by the tangerine stamp. The valley where I live is covered with tangerine orchards which are blooming right now and smell like heaven. So, the landscapes are of the mountains of the Ojai Valley with tangerine trees in the foregrounds. The pink one is at sunset when our mountains turn a bright pink with the setting sun.
They will be zooming out tomorrow! One question though...I cannot find clear envies in my entire county! May I send them in the mail w/ ATC envies this time and I will try to mail order some clear envies for next time? :wideeyed:

05-01-2012, 08:56 PM
May I send them in the mail w/ ATC envies this time and I will try to mail order some clear envies for next time?

That would be fine.

Love those oranges artkeyologist!!!!

05-03-2012, 01:47 AM
I am so sorry ... but I am NOT happy with the cards that I have made and just cannot submit them.
With just two weeks to go, I apologize, I simply must withdraw. I thought I could pull this out, and I just am unable to at this point ... art should be fun ... and my frustration surprises me.
:( sorry.

05-03-2012, 09:49 AM
Sorry to see you go, jaw.

I think, however, that I'm going to have to have to go with unused stamps because I don't know how to easily get the used stamps off of the envelopes!

Oh don't let that stop you if you have some awesome stamps on envelopes. It is so easy. Just cut/tear off that corner of the envelope, dunk it submerged in water, wait a bit and a lot of them just slip off and i have to find them on the bottom of the container. Others are a bit more challenging but still not a huge problem. It's at least worth a try with a couple.

craftADDchick - I like to soak the stamps off the envelopes but if you can't wait (or don't trust yourself) just cut round the stamp close to the 'frilly' edge (I actually have a pair of fancy edge scissors which gives an edge like a fresh stamp).

And for your other problem of too many cool stamps you can either
a) do them all then pick 4 face down to send in and put the rest in your gallery or
B) pick out a stamp at random and do them 1 at a time until you've done the 4

I'm sorry, but I'm gonna have to withdraw from this one. My laptop died a couple of weeks ago and this is the first tiome I've been able to catch up. The cards won't get to you on time now, but the work I've seen on this thread has been awesome! I'm so sorry I won't be a part of it!

Nora I need to withdraw from this. I just ran out of time, sorry!

05-16-2012, 08:45 AM
Sorry to see you both go!

Hasn't the due date pass?

05-22-2012, 12:27 PM
Yes, but I haven't traded out yet. I'll start swapping on Thursday or so.

05-27-2012, 06:44 PM
The returns are all swapped and packed up and ready to be mailed out on Tuesday (tomorrow is a US holiday.)

I wanted to let you all know this is one of the best swaps I've ever hosted. The cards are fabulous and just about everyone sent in a hostess card. I showed the cards to my husband and even he was impressed (hard to do!) Each of you did a wonderful job.

Could I get some swap angels to make a set of cards? I just found someone's cards in another swap's pile. I would do them myself since it's my mistake but I'm not a very good hand artist. :(

06-26-2012, 01:25 PM
I think I have a card or 2 I could send you. Do you still need them?

06-26-2012, 05:06 PM
Yes, please, sarat. Do you still have my address?

06-27-2012, 12:21 AM
Please pm it to me again :)

Thank you sarat for sending in angel cards. They are greatly appreciated! I can't give you rep at the moment but know you are a rock star!
