Mail Art Challenge: Bird Mail

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Welcome from Laurie to a new month and a new challenge here on the Portal:  "Mail Art".
For this challenge you will either decorate an envelope or use something related to mail in your project.

I opted to decorate an envelope and used a 5 1/2" by 5 1/2" square white envelope for this.  
I used a leafy patterned stencil and blue and green Distress Oxide inks to stencil the pattern over the front of the envelope.  Next I stamped the Bird Collage background stamp from Carmen's Veranda on the front of the envelope with black ink.  I then used the Swirls and Dots border stamp and black ink to stamp along the right and left edges of the envelope.

I affixed a decorative butterfly stamp to the upper right corner and typed out an address label to complete the envelope.  This is a really simple project with endless possibilities, so I hope you will share you mail art projects with us on the Portal.  Be sure to prominently feature rubber stamping in your creations for a chance to win some free stamps from Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda!
