Mail Art - Envelopes this time.

 I decided to sort out my stamp drawers today and see what exactly I had.
we have been having a Mail Art envelope swap with members from around the globe
It's a brilliant site as well as a really active forum and it has really got me back into 
crafting again.   I made five envelopes so sent them all off yesterday.  You only needed to make
one but I got carried away!
Sorry - I digress.  Whilst sorting out my stamps I came across some I hadn't used  before.
The little girls were second hand in a job lot I bought so long ago - I had to ink it up to see
what it was - then having done so decided to make an envelope with some tea dyed paper 
I had sitting in a roll on the corner of my desk waiting to inspire me.
The middle of the above is left blank for the address.

On the reverse I used another second hand set of stamps - cling ones this time.
I water coloured the tea stained paper with blue and used water colour crayons for the girls.
This one I am going to hold on to for a little while and enjoy it on my notice board in my studio
