I altered a plain, novelty mailbox with postage stamps and decorative papers from Bo Bunny’s Anthem Collection7 Gypsies clear stamps and Air Mail Washi tape gave the box some authentic vintage flair. Fun Twine from Maya Road added a great finishing touch.

Andrea had this to say:

When I lived in London (insert reminiscent sigh of happiness), the only downer was that I wasn’t there with family. That meant that mail brought on a whole new level of importance. The mail carrier became a beloved link to my loved ones back home and even though he was portly and had a mustache, he still seemed like an angel to me! So I decided to make my own Air Mail Angel as a tribute to those who bring us postal bliss. I brought her to life with an Avignon stamp set, a Tim Holtz light bulb to light her way, Colorbox Rain Forest ink, and of course my favorite Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

Meihsia had this to say:

It is always so great for me to send postcards to family and friends while traveling even with today’s technology. This week, I was inspired to create a postcard on a burlap canvas which was originally aTim Holtz District Market Burlap Panel with Christmas theme on it. I covered it with Faber-Castell Gesso and sprayed it with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in different colors. I also stamped the background using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Bitty Grunge and Clearsnap Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink Pads. After adding some embellishments, it is a beautiful wall/desktop decoration now.
