Black and White postcard swap - postmark by September 29th

Last month's monochromatic postcard swap was the most popular one yet.  To explore that theme a little further, I challenge you to create a postcard that is mostly black, mostly white, or a mix or black and white.  As always, any style and any medium are welcome.  We love the diversity of art and style we get in the group.  Keep them coming! 
Here are some of my own black and whites for your viewing pleasure:




 
SWAP DETAILS:
  •  Create a black/white postcard, no larger than 4"x6"
  • include your name and contact information on the back (address and/or email and/or blog) so that you partner can thank you or find out more about you.
  • leave the address section blank
  • Stick in in an envelope with:
    • a stamp (don't adhere to the postcard in case I need to send yours to someone out of the country)
    •  a mailing label with your name and address on it (I will stick it on the card I mail back to you.  This keeps me from having to decipher handwriting on the envelope you send me, and saves me time when swapping everything and mailing it back out) 
  •  mail it to me no later than September 29th:
             Karen Isaacson
             PO Box 532
             Shrewsbury, MA 01545
             United States

  • Feel free to make more than one ( you can send them to me in the same envelope).  You'll get back the number of postcards you create.  Make sure to include a mailing label and stamp for each post card you create.
  • If you live outside the US, don't include stamps, but send me $1 for postage via paypal.  email: iamrushmore@gmail.com
  • I will post your work to the blog when I receive it.  If you would like your image linked to your blog, or flickr account, or facebook page, or etsy shop (or whatever) just send me a note telling me how you want it linked.  (this is a great way to meet other artists and make lots of new friends)
