Reading yesterdays comments shows me you all loved Sarah's mail art as much as I do! And guess what... there's more! Here's another mail art project from Sarah...
Here's some notes from Sarah:
After my first introduction to mail art, I was up for something a little more adventurous, so I decided to alter one of the blank Urban Lily Secret Keeper Cards! These cards look like a thick postcard, but on closer inspection, you realise that they pull open to reveal a secret message inside! The card measures 6.75x4.25 inches.
I cut plain white cardstock to size, then inked with Peeled Paint and Broken China Distress Inks using the "Wrinkle Free Distress" technique. I adhered the background to the Secret Keeper card using Gel Medium. The blank cards are glossy, so I sanded them back so that they would adhere to the paper properly.
I went around the edges with a small filing tool to remove any excess paper around the edges.
I then used a variety of Darkroom Door stamps to stamp all over both sides of the Secret Keeper Card, masking with post-it notes and stamping over images so that they weren't being stamped on top of one another. I used Jet Black Stazon, and Teal Stazon for my stamping. Once finished, I inked around the edges with black ink.
For the inside, I scratched at the glossy surface with sandpaper, and inked using Peeled Paint and Broken China Distress Inks. I then stamped the images directly onto the background.
I had so much fun creating this piece! Now the hard part is deciding who to send it to!
Well, I can tell you who she sent it to! Sarah sent this fab piece into us here at darkroom door for us to use on our trade show booth! It made it through the post completely intact, stamped and all :) It's great and it got lots of attention on the booth!! Thanks again Sarah for sharing it with us :)
