Don't forget - It's in the Mail!

The theme this fortnight is 'It's in the Mail' at Try it on Tuesday, and  initially I couldn't make my mind up as to what to make, so I made two pieces.  My second, an altered envelope,  uses  this lovely Darkroom door stamp that was free with Craft Stamper a while ago.
My first step was to mask off an area for the address, then I stamped my butterfly post and masked that off.
I stamped 2 butterflies and masked them off too.  The envelope was then stamped with a script stamp and a small swirl before shading with Wild honey and Vintage photo Distress inks.
You still have one week left to join in the challenge and all details can be found here.

Enjoy the rest of your week,
Avril xx
