Mail Art Madness

Happy Mail Art Madness...

Oops, I mean Monday.... 

(or do I? I just started Keto on Thursday, so I'm definitely feeling some madness cutting my favorite food group ...carbs <3)

Stamps Used:

I started by stamping "Girl making face" and "Cunningly disguised". I then drew an address block, and a signpost to hold the quote.  With the base started I then masked off the main images.

Using a combination of Distress inks in: Speckled Egg and Tumbled Glass (both oxide and originals). I then added a layer of ink over everything , and began adding background detail stamps.

To add depth I stamped my cross marks in black archival ink. 

The banner was stamped in "Spiced Marmalade" Distress Oxide ink

With the same ink I used for the banner I stamped the color wheel lines, then removed my masks.

I just love the reveal after all that inky madness...
To finish I colored my focal images, then found a matching postage stamp to tie everything together. 

I hope you have enjoyed this little tutorial and bit of sassy mail art!!!
