Jon Foster's artwork is the inspiration!  His method of lifting images has really inspired me to use the packing tape- I just went the opposite direction of his idea into a meaningless void- a negative space! What a cool, positive response to zero-scaped imagery!

I left the price and text, just cut out the image. There are five on their way- just to US states (sorry rest of the world!) And I didn't put a return address on them- just to cement the send!  We shall see...

How would a cut out postage stamp pass the US postal services? In Greece a slight tear of a stamp is ok, I was told that the stamp must show the place (Hellas) and the amount (0.72) and then it will get cancelled and sent on its way. They really, really frown at any of my rubber stamps on the front...even on the back side they look at me in dismay ;-( but they will sent them...not too happy though.
Plastic laminated, plastics and plastic clear seem to get posted in the States because you dear people have self-stick we are still licking and then there are some that slip off anyway! Ah, the joys of snail mail!

Jen, you never cease to amaze me, love it all over!

So playing on the clear theme, I've scored out the inside of a stamp to make the stamp clear as well.  I haven't sent this yet as I'm hoping to get feedback from y'all- could an art-free stamp make it through the post??  My misgivings are thus:  Someone could easily cut out the cancellation mark to reuse stamps therefore the post office might not accept the stamp as valid.  We shall see.

Katerina-I have to agree with you, it isn't that bad of a hand. Got a cut on the thumb but overall...ok.

As long as this is limited to a hand, it's OK.

One lunchtime I interrupted two naked secretaries at a University I was working at in Denmark. I was more embrassed than they were. They told me that they were photocopying themselves -- all of themselves.

Being a gentleman and a scholar, I didn't look too closely at what they were doing, of course, but I do remember that it was a Rank Xerox 1230/C machine with the additional colour feature, and quick loading tray.

Regards, Val
