Practical Postcard

#025 01/17/2013
I've decided to try some postcards rather than just greeting cards.  I bought some Bristol smooth surface paper, 100 pound weight, and cut it into 4" x 6" cards.

Here is the first one.  I am using a regular mechanical pencil to add the shading, because I find that it smears less than the other artist pencils I've been using.  I thought the smearing would be an important issue for a postcard since it will be handled so much.

I am sending this postcard myself, but other original artwork is available for purchase in my Etsy shop!
