Postcard Update #4, Still in Progress

I'm getting close to the end now, and doing the fun details part. What you see here is still not finished as I will go over each one and tweak anything I think needs tweaking. These will be sent through the US Mail, so I am making sure everything is as glued as firmly as possible. Since I am sending through the mail, I am hesitant to send it to another country, as I am not sure it will survive, so I am going to make the drawing for US and Canada only unless you assure me that you think the mail in your country will be ok. I know I have international readers, so please speak up if you are interested. All of this is a giant experiment, and I am learning as I go along, so that's one reason I am giving them away!

 The drawing will be on Tuesday, 10 January on this blog. Please join in! It's free!
All you have to do is comment after the blog.  That's it!

The original post is here, update #2 is here and #3 is here,

Five so far (and the glue isn't completely dry in some of the photos, but I am impatient!); materials used on the details include oil pastels, sequins, Dresden bird scrap, dried orchids, dried rose petals, applique flowers, various bits, Silver Leaf pen, and lots of Polymer Medium!

Even though I changed the blade in my Exacto knife, it was still slow going to cut them into the individual postcards. Because this is foam core board, some of the edges will not be perfectly smooth.

Pulling out the doodads and fun bits!

As you can see, each one is different. This is a lot of fun, and I am putting skills learned in other projects to use here. I have 4 more to add and final pictures of everything.
