Art has no Rules

I haven´t made any ATCs for quite a while now, but as my sister is hosting an art themed ATC swap in one of our groups, I sat down to stamp some cards this afternoon. They don´t really make a "set", but hey - art has no rules!

Expand Your Mind

This week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge, Einstein, inspired me so much that I couldn´t decide if I´d prefer to make a digital or a stamped postcard - so I made both.
For my digital card I used images from Itkupilli, Finecrafted Designs, Krysty Scrap, TumbleFish Studio and Jen Maddocks.
And for my stamped card I´ve used a gelli plate background combined with stamps from Stempelbar, VLVS, Visible Image and AALL & Create.

Gothica/Books

 When I saw the book elements in Beth´s new digital image kits "Gothica", I immediately knew that I´d use them - so here are two collages using the Gothica elements and papers.

You are a Piece of this World

As a German, when you read this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge "Puzzle", your first thought is a jigsaw puzzle, because in German these are synonyms (in English, there are lots of other puzzles of course, but these have different names in the German language - I especially love the term "looking puzzled" in English!).
Though I do own some jigsaw tile rubber stamps and even some real tiles I could have used, I decided to make a digital card this week, using a photo I´ve taken in a science museum (yes, I am the person on the right), a jigsaw background and a scanned world map.

Newspaper

There are a few things that I need in the morning before I start the day - a cup of coffee, something with calories, and a newspaper. And it has to be real paper and not digital - and then when I enter the bus that takes me to work, I need a book made of paper and not an e-book. Maybe it´s because I´m not a digital native, but I believe that there are a lot of other reasons ... what about you?
For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge, I´ve picked Newspaper as my theme, and my card combines actual torn newspaper, a newspaper rubber stamp in red on the background, and of course the newspaper boy, one of my favourite rubber stamps.
I hope you´ll feel inspired by this theme to recycle your daily newspaper and make a 4 x 6 postcard with it - but of course you can also use digital newspaper elements ;-)
(For my card, I´ve used stamps from Tin Can Mail, Impression Obsession, Hampton Arts, Catslife, Stampington and LaBlanche.)
