An envelope containing this gorgeous altered card and currency arrived from a Belarussian postcrosser. She writes that she is 24 years old and an economist. She and her husband were in raptures when they read my request for altered cards. They rubbed the postcard on a grater, soaked it in coffee and solvent, and burned the edges of the card. The effect is FABU. I love it when a postcrosser gets into the spirit of play.
