Happy mail

Hello everyone,

and welcome to the first week of the new challenge over at Stampotique Designers' Challenge.
The theme for the coming fortnight will be 'Mail Art', which can be a postcard, an envelope, a pocket letter etc. Let your imagination run wild ! I hope you will play along; you might win a $30 voucher for the shop at the end of the month. Just make sure you read the rules on the blog before entering.

I have decorated a plain white envelope:

I started off making a mask for the address bit. I then used Distress Inks and a blending tool to colour the envelope. I also stamped with them. Twinkie and the flags were stamped with black Archival ink straight on the envelop. I the stamped Twinkie again on marker paper. I coloured him with Copic Markers and cut him out. I adhered him over top of the one I already stamped on the envelope. 
I also used a bottle cap and white paint to add some rings and some stickers to spell the word 'mail'; the word happy is from a happy birthday stamp. 

I have used the following stamps:

Thank you for stopping by today !!
