Letterbox Trading Cards
The additional photos are the LTCs I created using the carved stamp. The background of the cards were made with wet wipes. If you ever have baby wipes or wet wipes to dry out on you.....don't throw them away! Recycle them through your art. Painting them with watercolor creates the coolest tie dye effect that can be used for handmade greeting cards, artist trading cards or letterbox trading cards, and collage art! In doing this project, after watercoloring and allowing the wipes to dry, I glued them to watercolor paper that I had previously cut 2.5x3.5. The additional watercolored wipes were used to make envelopes for the LTCs. I decided to make an extra card as a first finder gift for one of my letterboxes that I will plant (or hide). It will also contain the carved turtle, and a login book for finders to stamp their signature carvings and a brief comment!

Thought I would share where I do my stamping and soft-block carvings.
I have different areas throughout my home that I use based upon the type of art that I am doing. Since I don't have a studio, here again.... I have to create space. Some of my art supplies are located here. When I'm carving on the go, I bring along my kit.
