Found this new challenge blog ARTFUL TIMES!  The challenges are offered every two weeks (isn't that a fortnight in the UK?).  Do check them out, it is fun to be in on the beginning and as they are just starting you can easily do the visits to other participants!

This challenge is to produce a 4x6 postcard using alphabet letters and/or script.  I started with a kraft postcard which I sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Spray/Mimosa, then using a Dylusions alpha stencil sprayed over the top of that with Tattered Angels Glimmer Spray/Black Gold.  The images are from Deviant Scrap, "Toil and Trouble" micro kit.  The title is a Tim Holtz stamp which I embossed in white.

I will use wide clear packing tape over the fronts of my postcards to ensure they survive the post as I do intend to send them out.  It's a great technique to use on any mailart.


  1. This is wonderful! Love those images and your misting is great!

    Hey did you get my email I sent a while ago? Couldn't send through your button, guess I'm not set up right for that.

    Hope all is well!
