I love my gelli plate! I made the background for these postcards with it. It's so fun and you just keep going and going and you have so much made in just a little bit of time. So fun playing. I then heat embossed some Tim Holtz stamps on top! Sent one to Russia and the other to Germany.
Here are a couple postcards I recently made to send off as mail art. I painted the background then added several postcard themed stamps. I heat embossed the orange hot air balloon. Not liking the orange color embossing powder I used... but do like the background on that one better.
These are what I have created to send off to those that I have already received from. They are my very first two mail art pieces I have ever made. So much fun to do. The inspiration for these envelopes came from Renee Stein on youtube.
Lots more mail art postings to come, as I already have several more envelopes and postcards in the works!
Send me an email or leave me your address in a comment if you also enjoy sending and receiving hand made mail art. We can mail to each other!
The theme for this atc swap was leaves, and the style was grunge! (my favorite)
The challenge was we could not use the color brown or any shade of brown.
I used corrugated cardboard as my background. Done lots of painting and embossing. The leaf I hand cut from paper. I painted, inked and dry embossed it. Fall is in the air is stamped and embossed. Mine was chosen as the favorite in the grunge leaves category so I did receive a little surprise from the host.
I had a lot of fun making this batch and really love how they came out.
The theme was apple and the style was vintage.
The challenge was we couldn't use lace, ribbons, or fibers.
This is my second artist trading card I've ever made. These just may be my new thing to make, so fun! The vintage image I found online. I printed it out on tea dyed paper. Used my Martha Stewart lace border punch (paper punched lace was allowed) for the black strips at the top and bottom. Words I printed out from computer, cut, and glued them on.
