Good morning and happy Sunday. It's time for a new challenge over at Rubber Dance, and this month it's to use an animal stamp. So here's everyone favourite giraffe.
This is the first time that I've attempted mail art, but it won't be the last as it was such fun. All of the paints that I've used are from the DecoArt Media Line.
I thought it would be easier to 'unstick' the envelope then I wouldn't need to wait for one side to dry. Any other time when I don't want an envelope to fall apart they do so without trying, but this time oh no! Four envelopes later I finally took one apart without tearing it. It's been very carefully (not!) painted with fluid acrylics and tinting base.
I've added some stamping now with Grungy Swirls and Round in Circles, and also lots of stencilling using the same colours as the background.
I've stamped Giraffe onto a dictionary page and coloured him in yellow fluid acrylic.
3rd Row Textured Houses have been stamped directly on the envelope and a bit of colour added. The 'surprise inside' stamp is from Happy Birthday.
And here's the back! - yes, it did stick back together lol. There's more Textured Houses, different circles from Pick A Number, and the SWAK is from Mail Art.
I've really enjoyed making this, and if I can get the envelopes to let go I shall be making more!
Please join in with our challenge, and add an animal (or 2 or 3)
