Scratch & Create Enchanted Forest - Postcard Kit Review and Giveaway

I received products for review from Quarto.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

DESCRIPTION

Adult coloring books are so last year - Dive into the awesome world of scratch art! With the specially designed stylus we provide, you’ll etch and scratch your way through 20 delightful, original art postcards. Each postcard is coated with silver, metallic, foil, and as you scratch away, you’ll reveal the full-color art beneath. Each design is illustrated Kailey Whitman, and is the perfect, personalized, place for a note to someone special.

My Review

I don't necessarily agree that adult coloring books are so last year but I will agree that scratch art is another fun, therapeutic hobby.  The Scratch & Create Enchanted Forest postcard kit has been a relaxing form of art for me.  There are twenty postcards in the book that start out as silver, metallic foil with shapes and lines that aren't real visible.  When you use the provided stylus and scratch the foil, colors and pictures appear.  It creates a completed image.

There are two sides to the stylus - one thin and pointy, the other wider and duller.  I prefer the wider side because I can get more done quicker and it doesn't scratch up the paper.  I've found that, once in a while, you will want to wipe the shavings away from the image so you can keep track of where you've scratched.  The postcard paper is high-quality and perforated for easy tearing.  On the backside of each is a section for addresses and a small note, like any other postcard.  You can send your finished art to someone special or use it as a display.

I send Postcards all the time, especially when we travel. I love to send them to the Grandkids so they can keep up with where we are. But I send them and cards all the time. I don't think anything has replaced a handwritten letter or note. It still touches the heart in a special way. The person can save it if they want. ncjeepster@aol.com
