Stampotique Mail Art, V2.0

This week's Stampotique Designer's Challenges is "Mail Art".  Here's a blurb about the theme.

"Let's make some Mail Art this week. Make something you can actually mail, whether it be an envelope, ATC, pocket letter, or postcard."

If you'd like the chance to win your choice of $30 worth of Stampotique stamps, you should play along with this challenge. Visit Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and be sure to read the rules so that you'll have the chance to win that great prize!!! Remember to check to see the deadline for all of this month's Stampotique Designers Challenges!

Jet Black Archival ink (Ranger) was sponged over the ruler from the Made To Measure stencil (DecoArt/Andy Skinner). It was then sponged with Shadow Grey Archival ink, then covered with Post-It notes to mask it.

Old Timey FrogCamperand Smiling Sun were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts) onto an A2 white envelope and onto Eclipse Tape (Judikins). The images on the envelope were colored with Copic markers. A touch of Clear Spica Glitter pen (Copic) was added to the Camper's windows. I made a coloring mistake, can you find it? Silver gel pen was used to add the chain from the Penny Farthing bicycle to the camper.

The Eclipse Tape versions were fussy-cut, then placed over their counterparts on the envelope. The cloudy sky was created with Sky Blue Archival ink and an old clouds stencil (Fairytale Creations).

The masks were lifted, the envelope was filled with an ATC, a card, and some goodies. It was then addressed, stamped, and mailed!

Thanks for visiting today!

I shall enter my envelope into the following challenges:
