Today I would like to share with you this mail art inspired piece which I call "A Game of Bingo!"
the King and Queen
Distress ink pads peeled paint and shabby shutters
Distress stain Peeled paint
Staz-on olive green ink pad
Kaleidacolor caribbean sea ink pad
green metallic rub ons
Letter's by K's Company and Basic Grey
Alphabet Postage stickers by cavallini and co
First I made background with distress inks which I pressed on my kraft sheet and sprayed with water. Then added a smear of the peeled paint distress stain. I pressed the envelope down on the kraft sheet to get the blot effect then set it aside to dry. I used Staz-On Olive Green to stamp the King and Queen on either side. The kaleidacolor ink pad I used for the bingo border stamp on the top and bottom of the envelope. I added a vintage piece of measurement paper in the middle (that could function as the space to write the address down). Also ripped the edges of that paper slightly and added a bit of metallic green pearl rubs on the edges of the paper and the white parts of the envelope.
Since I have so many letter stickers/chips and stencils, I like to play around with positions and variations before I settle with the permanent design. The 'LOST' letters in faux postage stamps really gives this the complete mail art feel I was looking for so I eventually settled for that.
Hope this inspired you to play around with game and letter pieces.
Thanks for stopping by!
