The challenge theme at the SPA blog this week is Alchemy.

I haven’t played along in a long time.  But this theme spoke to me and I had to create a postcard!

If your Alchemist is questionable, then your life could be too.

It seemed like a good postcard to document the current state of the world.

A warning that could be fatal if not taken seriously.

These Spooky postage stamps also glow in the right light.

The postal designs are really taking a turn for fun and creative!

To all:  Be SAFE and take care!


  1. It is good to see your post. At this time of social distancing I feel that seeing what bloggers and those on facebook are doing is a way of keeping in touch with the world in a way that I don't get from watching the news.
    Love this postcard and the way you have tied the card into our present times. I especially like those stamps. One more example that proves that you have alchemy down pat.
    Take care and be safe.

  2. Your alchemy card is great and wonderfully creepy...beautiful work.

  3. Well then! I don't think there will be another postcard like this.
    Your stamping is top class, I don't know how you get such perfectly clear images.
    That's the first skellie I've seen with a pot belly.
    Great touch with the spider's web.

  4. Well, you know this is right up my alley! LOVE IT!!! Definitely scary if you get a wack job alchemist! I hope you are doing well! We are doing well and staying safe in my craftroom.

  5. Wow fabulous card! Great postage stamp too!

  6. Wow, a fabulous card.

    Thank you for playing with us at SPA

  7. Great to see a post from you. I have been very absent on making posts but back to work and have a full house here - four generations! Makes life interesting to say the least. Take care Annie!

  8. Oh, how I love that postcard! After I saw your wax seal, I went online and found myself one. Mine is a skeleton doing a dab. I thought I was going to have to wait until Halloween to use it, but maybe not! This is a time when I really want to write letters and postcards, but don't know how people feel about getting mail. One mail art friend contacted me and said she was suspending mail for a while. Anyway, keep the fun posts coming and stay safe!

  9. Fun, fantastic art piece. And I love that spooky stamp.

  10. Great card and I love those stamps! xx
