Mail Art: Bird Mail

There is a new challenge at The Lost Coast Portal to Creativity that started on May 1st.  The challenge is "Mail Art", and I opted to decorate an enveloper this.  I chose a square 5 1/2" by 5 1/2" square  envelope for this.  

I used a leafy patterned stencil and blue and green Distress Oxide inks to stencil the pattern over the front of the envelope.  Next I stamped the Bird Collage background stamp from Carmen's Veranda on the front of the envelope with black ink.  I then used the Swirls and Dots border stamp and black ink to stamp along the right and left edges of the envelope.

I affixed a decorative butterfly stamp to the upper right corner and typed out an address label to complete the envelope.  This is a really simple project with endless possibilities, so I hope you will share you mail art projects over on the Portal.  Be sure to prominently feature rubber stamping in your creations for a chance to win some free stamps from Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda!
