Altered envie for mail art swap


Here is an altered envelope I created for a swap in one of my art groups.
The Background was created with acrylic paints, distress stain in wild honey, a paper napkin and some gesso. I then added details with papers and stamps from Bo Bunny's new etc range, - love that line of papers. The images of the cute guys are from Altered Artifacts on Etsy.

This is the back

And this is the front

Astrid, you always have such a beautiful, vintage "Look" to your pieces! I'd recognize your beautiful style any where. The lucky recipient is going to treasure this lovely piece! BTW - thanks for your good wishes, and good luck in my drawing. I know you'd love to add another Sharpie to your art supplies!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
