Three Muses

This week the Three Muses challenge is “mail art”.

I created this ATC using bits and pieces of envelopes from one day’s mail.  Some pieces got punched with a paper punch, some just ripped and glued down.  I used Jim Holtz Distress Ink in Tattered Rose on the background and some outlines in blue gel pen.  The words are all stamped on. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is a lovely and unusual take on this week’s theme. The idea of mail as treasure is a great one. Of course, some of our most treasured possessions are letters and cards we have kept over the years and you have illustrated this beautifully. Great work.

  2. What a wonderful piece of mail art- great design and love the mix of elements !
