Handmade Fodder?

This is stuff I made for a "handmade fodder" swap. The idea is to make accessories, I guess, suitable for including in art journals, as card fronts--basically on whatever project your partner needs a head-start on.
 This is the selection I mailed to my partner.
 I tried to color coordinate bits and pieces. Many of these feature stamps I've carved or experimentation in stenciling. For instance, I made the large loopy hot pink piece by spraying through the six-pack ring that holds sodas together.
 This set also features experimentation in stenciling. The large circle is made by spraying ink through a large bubble wand (the kind that kids use with soapy solution). Meanwhile, the oval on the bottom row is made by playing around with a potato masher and my Gelli plate.

These are just odds and ends that didn't really suit a color scheme. Aside from the collage ATC, they're exceptionally plain, so I'm assuming my part will sass them up and add focal images or words or something.
