Still printing mine - will probably get them out this week
Good to hear the card has arrived okay and yes, Art 300 paper is a lovely paper to work with. The only downside, is that the paper floats on the surface, so during washing I have weigh it down in the water.
And my photrio name is tezzasmall but my real name is abbreviated when signing cards = Terry S. I probably should have used the same name for both...
Just received a very cool card from drpsilver. Not a postcard actually, but a photo. A triptych: a contact sheet of 3 consecutive 6x6 negs. Each neg is of (I think) the top view of a cup of coffee. There are patterns on the coffee. But the cup is very recognizable in each shot. A white rim around black liquid times 3. And to add to the effect, the stamp is of a solar eclipse: another black circle. Very nicely conceived and executed. Thanks Darwin!

I am glad that you liked the card/photo. You are correct that I photographed the bottom of a coffee cup. Since I brew my coffee with a press pot there always is a little "sludge" left in the bottom of the cup. I noticed that when the cup is tilted some very intestine patters are formed. My intension was to capture three of these patterns in the camera on a single strip of film. The stamp was issued in celebration of the 2017 solar eclipse. I am not sure the heat sensitive ink is still active. If so, when heat is applied to the stamp the black ink should clear to show an image of the moon.
@drpsilver intriguing contact print/photos! I keep on thinking I see strange coins but it's actually looking down a coffee cup almost in limbo, must have been some impressive extension tubes to get that close. Very cool! Also includes a nice set of stamps! And I guess I was lucky, the card made it to Montreal unscathed.
Signup for the next round starts in May, so you've still got a little while!Aiaiai, I'm a bit late, but I posted my cards today. It's been a crazy few months for me; I haven't opened APUG just to browse for many weeks. Know that I am really enjoying the cards! Many thanks!
