Mail Art

The cry from Carol of Cubby Hole fame this week is.....
send me your Mail Art and make the post man smile!
Not sure the post man will smile but I quite like it.
I wanted vintage grunge.... think it qualifies :)
This will be posted tomorrow.

              Royal Brush: Journey.
              IndigoBlu: Grand Tour 1

This is fab Sue and you've used a whole host of my favourite stamps. I just discovered IndigoBlu at Doncaster the other week ........ and spent a bloomin' fortune, lol! There stamps are great and you already know I love the Choc Baroque ones.

Please let us know if the envelope arrives at it's destination.

Absolutely, definiely, vintage and grungey. You certainly achieved what you set out to accomplish. I hope the postman can find the address and doesn't think in needs a penny black stamp.

This is brilliant and should certainly give the postie something to look at and brighten his day - much better than a plain envelope.

First thing, I should say, your blog is amazing! I gain so much ideas by browsing through it! And I saw your mail art collections and I was blown away to your master pieces! So much like it! Keep on sharing! :)

Superb. I just hope the postie doesn't like it too much or it may never arrive.

What a great piece! And you certainly mastered the grunge/steampunk look1 I imagine your postman and the postman had to take his time checking this out before delivering it!
