Tutorial Mail Art by Majo

Hello my crafty friends. 

It's Majo here today to show you how to create a Mail Art  envelope using lots of Rubber Dance Stamps along with stencils, distress ink and drawing gum.

Let's get started .,....

I stamped the circles and the border with Archival Ink and masked them. I added the watch, the stamp and the "person" and also masked them.

To give my envelope colour I used 4 different distress inks: Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint and Ground Espresso and spritzed some water on top to have an interesting texture.

I used two different stencils and then I started stamping again, that's what it's all about, isn't it? I used the following sets: A little Birdie ...., Collage Elements 1, Envelope Stamps, Round in Circles and Stitch and Frame, all so very versatile!

As a last step I just rubbed off the masking.

Many different sets of stamps on my table and finally on my mail art envelope. You can  find them all at the Rubber Dance Stamps shop and yes, you can save: 15% on your next order with the coupon *MAJO2016*
