Telescopes for mushroom stalks...need I say more?? Take a look!! ~Leandra
Hi everyone, it's Kate (https://kateyetter.com) with you today, and I'd like to share with you some mail art featuring mushrooms.
When choosing these stamps I knew it would be a bit of a challenge as none of the images are remotely close to a mushroom. But I thought the shape would be similar so I decided to go with it and let my creativity take me wherever it chose to go.
I am on a bit of a mail art kick as of late so I thought a postcard and envelope would be perfect for this theme.
I am not much on flat backgrounds so of course I needed some black thread and gold embossing powder to add some dimension and texture.
At the bottom of the mushrooms, I added some red mirco-beads and covered them with green metallic paint to try and simulate moss.
Infusions were sprayed in the background and a TH paper doll was added. I think the little girl looks adorable sitting on top of that mushroom.
For the envelope, I did my best to dress it up without a lot of dimension. Keeping envelopes simple is a must if it is going to make it through the post undamaged. I stamped the envelope and then sprayed infusions. I was surprised to find that the infusions not only added the perfect amount of color but also added some texture.
Until Next Time,
