A swap-bot trade instructed participants to make a fish tank postcard:
“I don’t mind how you do it, but make one fishtank-postcard for one partner. Use your illusion 🙂 All techniques allowed…stickers are fine as long as you use them tasteful.”
I love fish, sea creatures, the ocean, and aquariums–so how could I resist? I couldn’t, that’s how.
Here we have some gift wrap, layered with black plastic from a mailer, green plastic from a newspaper wrapper, brown paper coffee filter, stickers, and colored ink-stamp impressions.
Since I was hauling all of this stuff out, putting in all of this time & effort, I got the most I could out of it by making six postcards, rather than just one. This means you will be seeing various other versions here as time goes by!
