Mail Art

Inspired by Sarah’s mail art post i decided to have a play.  Sarah made the most wonderful postcards to send but i thought it would be good fun to send her something along with the ATC’s i posted earlier today. Here is my first attempt at Mail Art.


Background was created using what was left on the Pan Pastels sponges after i made the ATC’s. Added two stamps from Darcy Wilkinson’s xmas stamps and the rest are from Darkroom Door Mail Art set. Totally in love with Darcy’s dotty border stamp! Added masking tape to the bottom of the envelope.

This Darkroom Door set of stamps has one of my favourite all time stamp images, it says’ Postie Postie Don’t Be Slow, Go Like Batman Go Man Go lol, love it Smile

This is the back of the envelope.


Was playing in Photoscape and liked the way this image below looked after i processed the colours in reverse.

P1050371 reversed colours

Love this look especially showing Darcy’s dotty border in what looks like Kraft Card colour.

Hope you like this first attempt and look forward to your comments Smile
