Swaps and Mail Art

I recently took part in some tags on swap-bot and I was lucky enough to receive some really nice items. Some of the tags I took part in were to create something and some were just sending a little something to the person you were sending to.

Outgoing Mail

This is an ATC I made for a lady in the UK, she asked for one with a peacock feather theme. I used vellum as the background, embossed some gold card then topped it with the coloured stamped images and finished it off with seme iridescent gems. I was quite pleased with the outcome.

This was an envelope I decorated for a lady in Austria, I also included a letter and some washi samples. it was good fun making this envelope though I think I'd colour the owl differently if I did it again.

This is an envelope I created for someone in the USA, I filled it with some items I thought she might like, but forgot to take a picture of the contents as it was quite late at night when I finished it.

I continued the theme on the back of the envelope. I had great fun making this envelope :)

Incoming Mail

This was a package I received for the send me a gift tag, the envelope is a cute pink and blue zig zag and has some really nice animal stamps on it, inside were some cat stickers, a pen and a pad of mini memo sheets some of which might find their way into some people's letters ;)

This was a package of pen pal supplies for a tag from the lady I sent to in Austria, she sent me some amazing owl themed items as you can see, some writing paper, washi tape and a Frixion pen which I have wanted to try for ages :) She also recently replied to the letter I sent her so I will be sending her a reply soon.
