Mail Art for Artful Times

Greetings friends this post is sharing 
"Mail Art"
as it is the challenge over at Artful Times
Great challenge and some fabby projects made by the team. 
Do pop over and take a look

I got all inky with this one :)

I took a regular envelope and rubbed some gesso all over front and back
then used DI
Bundled sage, Weathered wood, Worn lipstick and Tea dye
I also gave it a little cosmic shimmer spray Ancient gold
there is a lot of background stamping using 
text in soft blue, diamonds and a bird cage in weathered wood
A Tim Holtz background stamp in sepia 
then butterflies and a feather along with one or two other stamps I liked.

I also decorated the back of the envelope

 and made a card to go inside my Mail Art envelope
As you can tell I had great fun with this challenge a great Saturday morning :)

Thank you for looking and taking time to comment which are much appreciated.

Enjoy your Sunday

Hugs Sandra XXX

I am so glad you enjoyed making this entry - they are fun when you get going aren't they.
Love the back of the envelope which marries perfectly with the front which is very vintage and such a great entry.
Hugs, Neet xx
