Purple postcards - mail by August 26th

  Next up in our monochromatic color series - PURPLE!
 
 
Create a postcard using predominantly purple colors.
You can paint, draw, cut, glue, and/or embellish.  It’s okay to include a bit of black or white, or a small accent of another color, but overall, keep to the purple family.
These postcards will be mailed without an envelope to your partner, so keep that in mind if you are gluing and embellishing.
SWAP DETAILS:
  •  Create your postcard - any dimensions, just make sure you include the proper postage for the size.
  • 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.
  • Write a little note for your partner – a greeting, a quote, some info about you or where you live, or info about how you created your postcard.
  • Write "MMSA Purple" somewhere on the back of the card as well.  (I don't know about you, but I get a lot of mail, and it's sometimes hard to figure out if it's part of an organized swap or just personal mail.)
  • leave the address section blank
  • Stick it 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).  Keep in mind the maximum size card you can send with the post card rate stamp is 4.25 x6 inches.  If your card is bigger than this, or oddly shaped, or excessively rigid or lumpy, it will need more postage.
    •  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 August 26th (postmark date)

  • 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.
  • If you live outside the US, don't include stamps, but send me $1.10 (US dollars) per postcard 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 website, or blog, or flickr account, or facebook page (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)

  4. OMG!
    Am I EVER going to send early? NO!

    (if asked, that's the answer)

    okay, I'm on this. But don't hate me for sending off-purple, lavendar, mauve, lilac, bruise, or a very dark purple that you would swear is black but is actually purple if you use your imagination.
