Hot pink and orange...

When Evie and I had our first apartment in San Francisco way back (1970?), it was painted a lot of bright colors. I remember the bathroom was bright pink and orange! THIS MMSA swap reminds me of that! The swap was for hot pink and orange so I took some white cardboard and gelli printed those two colors to start, swirling them around and getting nice blobs of color. That would have been fine for the swap but I had to add something, so I added a couple of stamps...



Here is one of them closer up to see the  color blends:



As with all these swaps, part of the fun is in making them and then part of it is in receiving post cards from others! It is amazing to see the variety from the same prompt.

  1. Well those are nice and bright! Cool stamps too. Nothing like a prompt that hits home to light the creative fires.

    2. Like the texture and the fun colors of the background. The stamps add that extra touch that make it looked finished. Wondering where you swap through. I joined Swap-bot a year ago and have truly enjoyed it.

  7. Ohh these are fabulous. I too had a pink and orange apt in SF in the late 60's early 70s fun times.
