Postcard & Atc's for swapping

 Another postcard which I made for a swap at ukstampers.
I've used dylusions spray inks & the character is a dylusions one. The letters & numbers were cut using a sixxiz die.
Here are two atc's which I've made for a swap at my local craft group. ready for swapping in July.
The theme for this swap was stars & stripes.
The flay was cut using a sizzix die and then painted red, white & blue .
For my back ground I've used acrylic paint & cut some more letters & a number using a sizzix die again.

June Postcard Swap

I've taken over the running of the Postcard swap from Sam who had been organizing the monthly swap over at for quite a while .
I've enjoyed taken part in the monthly swap & when a request for a new host  was put up I volunteered to take over as I didn't want to see the swap close.
The theme I have set for this month was to include numbers somewhere on the postcard.
Here is what I made for this months challenge.
