A bit of Green Mailart
I'm living in hopes that this piece of mail art has been delivered now to my friend Annette. Having received an extra copy of Somerset Studio and being told by the publisher that they did not require it back I was free to offer it to someone else. If you don't know the publication check it out, part of an American group of publications it knocks spots off anything published in the UK!
That said all the stamps used here came with a British publication Creative Stamping, the thing I enjoy about this magazine is that the stamps are used in the article's and projects shared with readers giving you lots of different ideas on how to use them.
I've also used Tando and Prima masks with various inks (& those brushes I love so much) for colouring the stamped images I used Whisper Pens. Annette often jokes that she & I might be the only 2 people left who use those pens. Now if you have been here a time or two before you might already know what my favourite colour is, if not here's a clue I've used it a fair bit on this project!
Challenges I'd like to share this mail art with.
Ruby's Rainbow - Monochromatic Green + 1 other colour
Crafty Boots - Green
There are other Green themed challenges but looking at their other requirements my piece does not fit. I always try to check the rules it is so frustrating looking at entries and realising that they only remotely and with a bit of poetic licence do they fit.
Right it's a grotty Friday and the Gas Man is coming.
