Faux Postage Galore!!! - March 2007

I made these 3 Faux Postage Stamp cards for 3 different swaps I was involved in. I really like this technique and hope to do some more like this soon. I think that the post office could definitely come up with some better looking postage if I could come up with these designs on such short notice.
