Banksy Takes over the post Again!

Hello Again!
Welcome back to another Mail Art Monday!

Today I want to share the Envelopes I made for the VLVS Banksy Mail Art swap on the
(I hope some of you joined in!)

To start I created a pair of A2 sized envelopes using my Envelope punch board and some blue watercolor looking scrapbook paper.  

Next I stamped all 3 of my Banksy stamps in black Stazon ink. (stamps listed below)

I masked off my address block, with an business card that I often use as a mask. 
(Hence the ink all already all over
I traced around this with a black Micron pen.

Now to enhance the blue color, I used Distress inks in salty ocean and tumbled glass. 
The stencil I used was by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous (THMS055)

Next, I added a few flicks of picket fence and black soot distress stains. 
After I removed the mask I added a few doodles around the inside of the address lock with my white gel pen and a black Micron. 

I hope you all enjoy these fun envelopes, and I hope you feel inspired to get inky!


  1. I always enjoy your fun mail art. You have such a creative talent for designing envelopes. Placement of everything is always perfect and cleverly done. I love me a scrapbook paper start.

  2. You're mail art is amazing! It's something I look forward to every week. I hope you don't mind, I'm going to study you for inspiration on how to do better stamping and envelopes! I love that stamp, its probably one of the Banksy stamps that I don't have.... hmmm... Guess it's time to head down to VLVS! again.... lol


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