MailART Monday: Springtime BIRDS

BIRDS mail art

Today is the start of spring as marked in the calendar and I wanted to show you some happy bright springtime mixed media envelope on today's MailART Monday. I've only used Dylusions stamps for this piece together with my gelli plate, distress paints, embossing powders, sharpies and alcohol markers. It was really fun to do!

I started off by masking the round address circle on an envelope which already had some blue paint on it. Then I brayered on some orange and green colors. I made some texture by stamping on some bubble wrap with green paint directly on the envelope and also with use of my gelli plate.

Then I layered on the stamps with memento, dylusions and staz-on inks. I made the birds blacker with sharpies and used the text stamps over them and embossed those to finish it off as you can see in the first picture on the blogpost.

The back was also decorated the same way with brighter green and blue colors. I used a white gelpen to accentuate the outer lines. I loved using my Dylusions stamps again as I has them in my statsh for a good long while, at least over a year.
