Distress Paint Mail Art

Darkroom Door - Saturday, November 01, 2014

Hi stampers! It's Rachel here today with some mail art to share with you using a variety of Darkroom Door stamps with Distress Paints.



Here's how I created it:

1. Ink up the Damask Background Stamp with Brushed Pewter Distress Paint. Roll the background stamp over various sections of the black envelope so you only get a portion of the stamp touching the envelope. This gives it a more random look.

2. Repeat the above technique, this time using French Script Background Stamp with Picket Fence Distress Paint, stamping alongside the Damask background areas.

3. Stamp the Paris Postmark (from Montmartre Rubber Stamps Set) randomly over the envelope using Picket Fence Distress Paint.

4. Swipe Brushed Pewter Distress Paint around the edges of the envelope to give it a little border.

5. Stamp the large Tag from the Tags Rubber Stamps Set onto kraft cardstock using Archival Jet Black Ink. Trim around the edges.

6. Stamp the paperclip from Mail Art Rubber Stamps Set a couple of times in the top left corner of the tag. Stamp 'To' (Mail Art Rubber Stamps) onto the tag. Adhere the tag to the front of the envelope.


It's now ready for addressing and sending off in the mail!
