A Merry Christmas Mail Art (2)








This is my last Christmas mail art to share for the moment.
Here are the steps to it.
1) Use a pattern paper as the base of the card. Distress the edges with the scissors distressing technique and ink it with vintage distress ink.
2) Cut out a square piece from another pattern paper. Distress the edges and ink it with black soot distress ink.
3) Cut out a rectangle piece from a third piece of pattern paper. Distress the edges and ink it with vintage photo distress ink.
4) Layer a strip of clear tape (Prima IOD Clear Tapes) on the bottom of the card.
5) Hand stitch a line on the left of the card. On the vertical rectangular piece, stitch some huge stitches on the bottom of it and add some silver liquid pearls to it.
6) Use a die cut tag to trace and cut out from a black card stock and doodle it using a white pen and some liquid pearls dots.
4) Add a Christmas clip art to the center of the tag and add some glossy accents to the clip art for some dimension.
5) The address box had been stamped on a white card stock and cut out. Ink the edges using brushed corduroy distress ink. Add some glitters (Stickles) on the address box, the clear tape strip and the clip art for some bling.
Hope you all like all the mail arts I've shared. I'll be posting a picture taken with some of the attendees from one of my workshop.

Fantastic mail art and I love it. I am fascinated with the idea of using 3 patterned papers on one art project. Thanks for teaching me this. Enjoy France. wish I could make it to one of your classes.
