art mail = happy mail.

Hayley recently hosted an artistic envelope swap on our Rubber stamping South Africa group. Needles to say the results were amazing and made for some interesting conversations at the Post Office. The purple envelope is my design. For the base I used a layer of gesso on book paper scraps and then added a layer aubergine paint dabber. I stamped with bubble wrap in the same aubergine for some pattern. the house is made up of a stamped image, collage pieces and printed tape measure.To finish it off i added some more stamping around the edges with a favourite flourish from Fancy Pants. the envelopes are C5 size so we had enough space to work on...

this is Hayley's amazingly colourful envelope...

and one by Penny with loads of flowers stamped...
...and yes for those who notices i did send myself an envelope through the post. although i must say i am quite disappointed as the PO workers obviously neglected to put some effort into their stamping. you would think they would come to the party and add some serious postmarks to these beauties to help along the process....
