Frightfully Fun Mail Art Monday

Hello Crafty Friends!!!

It's almost time... and I've already got the Halloween itch. 

 The chill was in the air for a few days, and that's all it took. 
(Yes, I am one of those crazy fall people, and yes I love pumpkin everything.)

Ok, back on subject.
Today I want to share a super fun envelope for mail art monday. 

Stamps Used:
Below you can see all of my base stamping.
(I stamped the skeleton family first then, masked it off.)

Next, I used Blick alcohol markers to color my base boarder. 

Next, I inked my background with Tim Holtz Distress ink in- Mustard Seed, and Squeezed Lemonade.
Then, I added some stencil details with carved pumpkin Distress ink. 
(sorry the colors are a bit washed out in this photo)

After I finished this one, and loved it so much I decided to create a few more in other colors. 
(I have a few friends with different favorite colors)

Thank you for Joining me today!!! 
I hope you all enjoy this early fall inspiration!

Under the deep blue sea

Hello crafty friends!

Today I want to share a 3D card I made for this weeks challenge over at Stampotique Originals. 

For this card I used a combination of distress oxide inks and original distress inks.  There are 4 base layers, plus all the bits added on the top. :) I colored my images with Zig clean color markers and distress ink. 

Thank you for visiting! 
I hope you join us!

Post Shark Week Mail Art Monday

Hello Crafty Friends!

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday to kick off your week.  Today is one of my favorite days... Mail Art Monday!!!  

Today I want to share an A2 sized envelope.  With it being beach season I wanted to do something that made me think of the ocean.  Plus, with shark week having just passed, I knew this would be too fun!

Stamps Used: 

I started by stamping my main images in memento black ink.
(Remember to leave room for your postage stamp and address)

Next I colored all my base images with various markers, then add my base distress ink layer for the background. 
(Tumbled glass and weathered wood)

To finish everything off I added some visual interest with a Tim Holtz layering stencil, and a shark postage stamp. 

Thank you for visiting today! I hope you inspired to create some fun mail art too!!
