Snail Mail

Hello Friends,

To send via conventional postal system is very exciting as opposed to Electronic mail .. Written letters ,their envelopes , the smell of the papers( there are scented papers too ) , I used to Love them.
There are certain things of olden days which needs to be kept alive ..

Lessology came up with a Challenge : Snail Mail Revolution . The DT members have excellent Projects to inspire us with  ..

In my school days, during summer holidays, I used to write to my grandparents and my friends .. I love doddling around the corners of the envelope along with the address ..

Now for this challange , I had few envelopes(with cards in ) which came along flower bouquets for my birthday. I have used those envelopes for this challenge ..

Applied a coat of Gesso on it so that it can take the colouring and stamping without bloating to the other side.
Decoupaged a flower from a napkin on to the corner using Multi Medium Gel.

Distressed the edges with distress ink(Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, )

Stamped along the corners of the envelope using Fiskars Postal Stamp Set ..

I also stamped on the Back of the envelope as a seal ..

Pasted washi tape ( Postal and Floral Washi ) on the left corner of the envelope and the Back side of the envelope too ..

The Snail Mail looks like this !!!

I got carried away so much while dong this that I made 2 more ..

Thank you ..
