Nursery Rhyme Time... Mail Art Monday


Its's me again... 

(coming to you from Myrtle beach today, but more on that later)

Today I'm here to share how I created this fun and easy envelope inspired by this months inspiration board

Don't forget to check it out and play along with us! 

(link up your project here)

I used the words mouse and numbers to inspire me... Then went a little wild with the story book rhyme "hickory dickory dock" ... Start by stamping out your mouse/rat critter, then masking him off. 

Next stamp the clock over that ... (Also masking it off)....  At this point you begin the background.  
I began with stamping the dot textures around the clock to add depth, and I added the chevrons to create an address label.  Next I inked the background green using various distress inks (crushed olive, mowed lawn, and hints of mustered seed)

For added depth I used black glittered pan pastels around the clock and mouse. I also decided to color in my chevrons with a black glitter wink of Stella pen (just because I wanted to play with it!!! lol) 

(the quote I printed from Microsoft word and used black pen around before gluing down)

Thank you for stopping to visit with us! I hope you found some inspiration to kick off a crafty day!!

  1. Celebrating in Myrtle Beach are ya? This new mail art is so cute. That's not quite how I remember the mice looking. LoL. This guy is more fun. He also seems to fit better into the rhymes of treachery by Mother Goose. Bwahahahaha


Thanks for your comments, I love hearing from you!!
