I have five almost completed. I think I will be doing some pen doodles over the cards. I started with painted phone book pages that I tear into collage pieces and glue down on the postcard. This time I am using precut watercolor paper by Strathmore. Here are some photos of painted papers and the five postcards that are almost completed.

The deadline for sending them out is April 8.
The next photo shows some quick sketches done with a dip pen and India Ink on pages from my old Gregg Shorthand book:
