    Sepia Photo Swap: Abandoned

    Yesterday I received my returns from the Sepia Photo Swap: Abandoned. For this swap we had to take photos of abandoned places or things and make them sepia.  This is the first swap I have done that hasn’t really required any painting, drawing or collaging.  I felt strange not doing anything on the cards so I used distress ink on the back that looked like sepia and I ran all the edges on a black ink pad.  I like how they came out and made me feel better about sending a print of a picture.  I really like how my cards came out.  I created several extra which you can view here.

    Below are the cards I received.
