Feeling Foxy on Mail Art Monday

Hello crafty friends!

Happy mail art Monday!

Stamps used:

Today I want to share a fun and bright card using Mary Vogel's awesome fox, and some of my favorite art journal style stamps. 

I started my stamping my scalloped boarder in memento black ink. 
(I then masked this off, sorry I got excited and didn't take pictures until I started coloring).

Next, I stamped the fox from Mary Vogel.  I also masked this off, and used a notecard to mask the space for the address box. I used a black micron to trace the address block. 
(I also drew a few "stitch lines around the address box" before placing the mask back down)

With everything masked off. I used distress oxide ink in peacock feathers to color the background.  To add extra depth I used a Tim Holtz layering stencil (ths061) and added twisted citron distress oxide ink. 

To color everything,  I removed all the masks.  I used blick alcohol markers to color all of the images, then I added extra details with colored pencils and a white paint pen.

Finally,  I stamped my row of numbers in black soot distress oxide ink. 

I hope you've all enjoyed this fun little envelope and feel inspired to create some too!

  1. Feeling foxy with Janis Joplin! He does look a bit on the sly fox side. Fantastic background inking. Love the color. The numbers stamped down the side and the address label stitched on. Very fun. Fantastic color mix with the hot pink bottom border.
