Currie's collage sheet challenge - due September 3rd

It's been a while since we've had a collage sheet challenge.
The lovely Currie Silver created these sheets for us many months ago, and it's about time we put them to good use!

The Challenge:
Print the sheets and use the images to create a postcard.
You can alter the images, resize them, cut them, duplicate them, etc.
You don't have to use all of them.
You can use just one of the sheets, or mix up the images from the three sheets into a single piece.
You can add paint or crayon or marker or writing or embellishments, but don't add any images other than the ones on these sheets.
 How to download the images:
Put your cursor over the image.
Mac users: control click
PC users: right click 
A menu pops up.  Choose "Save image as..." 
Another menu pops up that allows you to change the file name if you want, and to save it to your computer.
If you're having trouble printing or saving let me know and I can email you the sheet as an attachment.

  •  Create your postcard - any dimensions, just make sure you include the proper postage for the size. (in order to send you piece for the postcard rate it needs to be no bigger than 6 x 4.25 inches and it must be flexible)
  • 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.
  • it's nice if you write a little message for  your partner (something about you, a quote, how you made your card, etc.)
  • Write "MMSA - Currie's collage challenge"  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)
    •  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 3rd
             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.
  • If you live outside the US, don't include stamps, but send me $1.10 for postage via paypal.  email: iamrushmore@gmail.com
I will email you when I receive your item(s) and will post your work to the blog as soon as I can.  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)
