Color Me Swappy

Thanks again to iHanna, I'm making art and posting here today!  
I had so many watercolored papers, gel prints, and other art papers
accumulating in my stash, and thought I should use some of them
for my cards this time. But how to use them?

The papers were all so yummy that I thought it would be cool
to combine as a many of them as possible onto each card.
Weaving strips seemed to be the best way to do this.
It was a bit tedious, but it really had me looking closely at each
bit of paper, and it became a meditative process.  

Color is hugely inspiring to me, so the cards became little color studies.
I stood at my kitchen bar, as I have been sitting a lot lately...
and I don't need an Apple Watch to tell me I need to stand!

They look like little quilts in this photo, I think.  Maybe that's good for a Fall Swap!

A couple of my favorites from the stack.

A good "hand".

I am sending these today, but I think I will put them in envelopes this time. 
They need a little protection to arrive in good condition at their destinations!
Can't wait to start getting cards!
I hope all my swappers enjoy these.

Thank you for stopping by!
