The Mailbox

Good Tuesday to you!  The next ICAD prompt is mail.  I am also linking this up to the masculine challenge at Mixed Media World.


I created a mini envelope with 3 index cards.  I put two index cards together with tape around the sides and bottom.  I then cut a flap and attached it with tissue tape.
I stamped over the background on the bottom with a mail definition stamp from memory box. I hardly have used it and it was perfect for the challenge.  I then mixed in images from DarkRoom Door, Stampers Anonymous, and Deep Red. 
 To close my flap on my envelope I used two brads with a tiny Idea-Ology paper clip and a piece of twine.  I died a feather with blue ink for my quill.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hi, Suzanne! Such a long time since we last chatted! Have you been on the DT for SSS long? (I'm so out of it - need to catch up dreadfully.) Last time I heard you were on the Stampendous DT, but I'm pleased to see you on all of these other DTs; I don't know Darkroom Door, so I'll have to give it a look. Your projects here are looking as fabulous as ever!

    Blessings,
    Deborah
