MAIL ART


The challenge at 4 x 4 Friday this week is Mail Art.  I have used mostly rubber stamps with an old air mail envelope for the base.  Also found a small vintage envy with the address that I cropped and a plane to denote "airmail".  The private mailing card stamp is from Tin Can Mail; the postmark is from Coronado Island; the wavy lines are Magenta; "post" from Rubber Monger and the gentleman is from Endless Creations. Sponged some tea dye distress ink all over. 

Thanks for looking!
