Celebrate, lt's Mail Art Monday

Welcome Back for another Mail Art Monday!

Today I wanted to share a birthday themed Postcard that I made for a friend.

Stamps Used:

To start, I used a piece of paper that I had already painted with some Dylusions paints, and a stencil.

Next, I stamped the set of birthday kids, and colored them with a variety of zig clean color markers.

After these were colored, I decided to add some more texture to the background with white Dylusions paints and a homemade stencil (I used a die cut to make it). 

On a separate piece of paper I stamped my sentiment. I also decided the background needed just a touch more stamping...  

Once I felt everything looked just like I had hoped I glued my sentiment on and glued my postcard to a sturdy piece of black card stock. I also hand drew some stitching around the edges. 

Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoy this Mail Art Monday inspiration.
