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.

Hello Again, 

Happy April Fool's Day and Mail Art Monday!!!

Stamps Used:
Man with Tea Cup
Double Coffee Rings
Doodle Frame
Cow in your face
Deliver To

I started with an A2 Envelope and card base.

I forgot to take pictures until a few steps in, so I hope you understand my description.
I started by inking my man with tea cup (when inking I masked off the head on the stamp). I stamped the body in memento ink. With the body stamped and dried, I masked this area off.

Next, I stamped the cows head in memento black and masked it off too.

On the envelope, I stamped my scalloped boarder "Doodle frame", and deliver to. I masked off the address area with a small block of paper, and masked off my boarder.

(Below you can see all the pieces masked off)

With everything masked off, I used Distress Oxide inks in: mustard seed, fossilized amber, ripe persimmon, and spiced marmalade. The stencils used were the Tim Holtz layering stencils. 

The best part... removing the masks....
And coloring the base pieces.

Now, the finishing touches...
I stamped my coffee ring stamp. I added a few flicks of distress stain inks in black soot, and picket fence. I also added a matching cactus stamp.

Below on my matching card, I added a Tim Holtz snarky sticker.

I hope you all enjoy this set. This was made special for a new friend whom is also a coffee lover as well as a fan of cows. 

How do you drink your coffee? 
Mine is usually 90% milk and sugar with a hint of coffee...
AKA cappuccino, frappes and lattes
