Yellow-Orange Mail Art

Both The Three Muses and “One Powerful Hour” set “Mail Art” or “Envelope Art” as a theme for their challenge.  I wanted to send some ATCs to the UK for the “wings” swap hosted by the Stamp Man, so I decided to create a matching mail art envelope in my favourite colours for the moment: yellow, orange, rusty hinge and brown. Therefore, I also would like to submit this entry to the Rainbow Lady’s “Oranges and Lemons” challenge.

It’s a pity that I don’t have an elegant handwriting… And the Address was way too long to fit in such a small space.

Anyway, I wouldn’t exactly call this art, but I guess it’s always a nice surprise to receive a decorated envelope like that.

Stamps used

  • Butterfly, small dragonfly: Artistic Stamper
  • Drafonfly (big): Cherry Pie
  • Script and swirl stamp: Crafty Individuals
  • Map:  Stampcamp
  • Oblitertation marks and wings: Scrolls Work
  • “Fly” and “Voyage” sentiments: Oxford Impressions

    Aisling, the colour palette you have used here is so Summery and joyful and has a glow all of its own. You have made a really beautiful job of this decorated envelope and I for one would be happy to see it pop through my letter box. Thank you so much for sharing it at the Three Muses.
