Challenge 55 Artful Times-Mail Art

Hi All hope you are having a good day and thank you for finding time call in at Jumbled Crafts. 

I can't believe another 2 weeks have flown by and it is time for another challenge at Artful Times. The badges, brooches and buttons entered last time were just amazing with wonderful ideas.
 This time Neet has chosen the theme Mail Art and I was quite excited to try this as I have never done any before.

This is what I made. I coloured the envelope with  H20 paints then used stamps and images cut out of a seed catalogue. The flower and leaves stamp are by Papermania and the diamonds is Crafty Individuals. The beautiful postage stamps were on a box of goodies I received from Valerie and I am so pleased I could use them on this piece. The text I cut from a magazine

Hope you will visit Neet and Wendy to see what they made for the challenge and join us with your take on the theme as you could win a £10 voucher to spend at Oyster Stamps when the winner of two challenges is chosen

Love Chrissie x

I would also like to share this and Moo Mania and More where their theme is also Mail
