Mail art for swap

Hello everyone!  I'm here to share something new in mixed media for me!  I have done some altered mail for a swap with an old envelope that I got and recycled.  I used a bunch of paint, some stencils and some stamps from Paper artsy (Love those stamps) and some Dylusions stamps (another favorite).

I also did some stitching all around.  To fit with this envelope I did a little postcard as well.

You can see the making of this on the video here
And for those of you that don't want to watch the entire video here is the finished look for the front where the address will go.
And the back of the envelope and the postcard
I really hope this inspires you!  It was my very 1st time making this but it will not be the last.  I'm pretty sure that others would like to get envelopes like this one.

I'm entering this set in the following challenges:

  1. Art impressions stamps - house and home
  2. Crafting with an attitude - anything goes
  3. Drs designs blog - Fussy cutting - I fussy cut the houses as well as the sentiment
