Here's my project for the Snail Mail Enthusiast Challenge at Sinderella's Studio. The objective was to create a notecard and envelope to swap. I had so much fun making mine. I just went with a very whimsical theme with a bit of a vintage twist using all the colors I love. I used a cutout vintage photo and then just started adding and layering different elements.
I had a pretty floral napkin so I crumpled it up and glued it on after I gave the card a wash of blues and greens. After I added everything I grabbed a copy of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey (this was a used one that I use for my projects) and the first page I turned to had this sentence which made me smile and I thought it was perfect because of the riot of colors I used.
I made the envelope from colorful scrapbook paper that I really love. Again I added different vintage elements and text from the same book.
What I really liked about making this was being able to chanel my inner child. I had fun playing with paper, paint, glue and glitter.
Thank you for the challenge Dana! Hope you like it.
