2013 Millennia Mail Art Swap {Phase 4}

This winter I am warming up my mailbox by participating in a very unique mail art swap with an amazing group of ladies.  This swap is a twist on a project facilitated by Tofu.  A bundle of seven manila postcards were mailed out, each card broken into sections.  Each person in the swap round robin works on a piece of each card and then mails the entire group onward to the next person.  Here are the swap cards after I completed my sections.

Tofu's card; theme "Trees and Leaves" - I added a little leaf drifting on top of a background of leaf-like paint daubs.
Hanna's card; theme "Pink" - Added a piece of painted book page edged with lace and pink polka-dotted washi tapes.
Natasha's card; theme "Ocean" - Attached a piece of hand-painted book page that reminded me of ocean waves.
 My card; theme "Wonderland" - To my own card, I added a small collage of Wonderland ephemera.
Roben-Marie's card; theme "Circles, Dots & Doodles" - Here I added a piece of book page with painted purple circles that I further embellished with gel pens.
Tammy's card; theme "Happiness" - Happiness for me is time and steady hands for stitching so I added a strip of handmade paper and some yellow cross stitches.
Karen's card; theme "Orange Monochromatic" - Added a piece of hand-painted and colored black and orange paper.

These beauties are now off in the mail to Karen and then finally to Roben-Marie.  We're almost done!  Can't wait to see the final results!
