Artistamps swap - due August 17th

Gina is back as guest host, and this time she wants to coordinate another "arti-stamp" swap.
What is an arti-stamp, you ask?
Basically it's fake postage....

“The term artistamp or artist's stamp refers to a postage stamp-like art form used to depict or commemorate any subject its creator chooses. Artistamps are not valid  postage and typically the creator has no intent to defraud postal authorities or stamp collectors. “  

We did one of these swaps back in May of 2014 and it was great fun.  You can read Gina's tutorial on how she makes hers by clicking here. 
You can also read my original post, with other tips and info, here. 

You can also see what your fellow swappers made last time by clicking here and here.

For this swap:
Make 5 half-sheets of stamps (with at least 10 stamps per sheet).
Gina is going to keep one of your sheets for herself, and send you a sheet of her own sheets of stamps, plus sheets from four other artists.

Stick your sheets in an envelope.  Include one "forever" stamp ($.49) and one return address mailing label.  Gina will recycle your envelope for the return mailing.
