Mail Art Monday Love

Hello Crafty Friends!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Happy Mail Art Monday!


Today I want to share a super fun postcard I created for a friend.
I wanted something fun and bright, so I went with an Alice in Wonderland theme.

Stamps Used:

I started with a 4x6 base for my postcard. I started by stamping the Mad Hatter in memento ink and masked it off. 

Next, I stamped return library card in watering can archival ink.  To add extra detail, I stamped library return dates, and "this book belongs to". 

Next, used my distress ink to add a gradient for my background colors. 

After removing my mask, I stamped my stars in cornflower blue. 
I used various markers and colored pencils to color my Mad Hatter. 

I also used a few flicks of black dylusions ink, and perfect pearls sprays to add a bit of grunge.

I hope you all like this postcard as much as I do.

Late for Facebook...

Hello, It's me again...

Today, I am here to share another super fun and easy Mail Art Monday 
card and envelope set!


You know I love snarky mail, and this one is just too perfect for so many people...
(Myself included)


Stamps Used:

I started with and A2 envelope and card base. 
I began by stamping my woman with her hands on her face on both the envelope, the card, and on scrap paper. (the scrap paper was to make the mask).

Next I stamped my sentiment on my card base then set this aside. 


Returning to the envelope, I covered my woman with the mask. I also created a mask for the address box from some scrap paper. 

With everything masked off, I began to add my background detail using a Tim Holtz shifter stencil with distress ink. 


When the background was complete, I removed my masks and colored my card and envelope with various alcohol based markers. 


I hope you all like this fun little set!!
Have a wonderful week!!

I used various alcohol based markers to color my base images, then I masked everything off.

Off to Wonderland...

Hello Crafty Friends!
Happy Mail Art Monday!!!



Stamps Used:


I started by stamping my scalloped boarder along the base. 
Then masked it off to stamp my main image. 
(for the address box I used Zig millennium markers to trace a rectangle mask.  I used the same marker to make the smoke extend to the top of the envelope)

Next, I colored my base images with blick alcohol markers. 

When everything was colored, I masked everything off and began to create clouds using a hand made stencil and distress ink. 

To finish everything off, I add finishing details with colored pencils, and a white paint marker. 


Thank you for visiting!
I hope this brings you a bit of Monday cheer.
