Still Time to Enter the Mail Art Challenge!

Nanette here again with some Christmas mail art!  Our Lost Coast Designs Challenge is still open for a few days, we close on the 27th so get those stamps and get messy with an envelope!  I finally got my Derwent Inktense blocks last week...squeee!  I gently tore an envelope from Betty Jo from a swap to use as my template.  Then loads of watercolor blocks and stamping with the wrong ink that smeared horribly so covered with a coat of light green paint and left it!  Came back and started over and added some stencils and embossed the inked images :)

 I used the wonderful "Elf With Star" from Carmen's Veranda and the "Christmas Lights" from there too.
Had to add "Merry Christmas" from Party Words comes from Lost Coast Designs and it has a ton of sentiments on it so well worth having in your stash!

That's it for me today!  Come play with us we have events coming up that you can keep up with on the amazing Lost Coast Portal to Creativity ...just look at the side bars and click on the things we have going on and it will take you right there...magic!


  1. I have never done mail art - aside from a sticker on an envelop!!! So these have all been so fun to see. Love the colors on this Nanette. The elf with a star is so cute!!! Thanks bunches for super inspiration! j.

    1. Thank you so much, Joi! I think this is my 4th mail art make :) I had to ask what it was at first! But it does get fun playing with envelopes and keeping a spot open for addresses and stuff! Thanks for stopping by! xx
