Mailart for Mixed Media Monthly June challenge # 37

Hello friends and Happy June, - hope the sun shines for you!!
It's the first of the month and that means a new challenge at Mixed Media Monthly!!
I created a piece of mail art, but that is not really our theme! It's our 3rd anniversary and like usual in June our theme is pick any theme from the previous year. Here is our badge for this month, listing all the themes:
I picked # 36, but put a twist to it, and added a real stamp as well as some rubber stamping.


The background was created with 3 different colours of Oxide Inks, Broken China, Faded Jeans and Vintage  Photo.
I decoupaged a piece of the top layer of a paper napkin on one side.
The special delivery sign is a Tim Holtz stamp from his Correspondence set, stamped in Plum Archival and then fussy cut.
I hand lettered the address label, which by the way is just made up, I think most people would not enjoy having their address publicly displayed like this. It will be easy enough to cover it with the address of the real recipient :o)
And finally the back of the envelope. I adhered a part of another mail themed paper napkin and some additional stamping  with a Crafty Individual stamp I received from Donna Bowman our DT leader last month.

Now before I sign off, our sponsor this month is :
Donna is offering a $50 voucher for one lucky winner!!!

Well, that's it for now, make sure to head over to the MMM Blog to see all the awesome projects the other team members have created and remember if you decide to play, do add our badge to qualify  as a winner. Hope to see you there and have a brilliant creative month!

  16. This is really lovely! Astrid . Mail that anyone would be delighted to receive . Those Distress oxides really suit your style of creativity perfectly .
    I may be tempted now to 'return to sender' any mail I receive unless it comes in an envelope as lovely as this x

  17. Wow, Astrid! I love this piece of mail art, and I can't imagine it going through the USPS! The oxide background is delicious and your hand lettered address label looks fabulous! I had a little giggle over the addie, though! In USA we always list a state and the zip code is 5 digits. Ha Ha! You've used your artistic license, though and made a USA address look so elegant! Wish it were my address on this beautiful piece of art! Hugs!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
