For this swap you will send your partner 1 illustrated (by you) envelope.

You will illustrate the envelope in whatever style you are comfortable with. Pencil, ink, marker, paint, etc. Sketch, doodle, draw, and cover every inch of the envelope except a spot for your info and your partners mailing info. No stickers or cut & paste please.

Can be black & white or in color. Theme of envelope is up to the sender but please check your partners profile to make sure it isn't on their dislikes, and nothing potentially offensive. Envelopes are to be sent as-is once complete, not mailed inside a second envelope.

In the envelope you will send any 2 of the following: a note about yourself, a poem, a recipe that you have tried and your personal opinions on the dish, a postcard (new or used,) a bookmark, a reading list of your top 10 suggested books, or an ATC (made by you or someone else,) and/or a copy of your 'bucket list'.

Please rate 5 if you receive an illustrated envelope that is at least 75% covered in images and contains 2 of the items listed above.

I will angel this swap 4 weeks after the sending deadline if required, and only after attempts have been made to resolve the problem with your partner, inbox me if there is a problem.

So we can stamp and ink the envelope? I like distressing and stamping. I like decorating envelopes.

I can't wait, love decorating envelopes.

im not all that familiar with the process of stamping and distressing. i do know some people do stamoed pieces then watercolor them, which is lovely (i am envious of people that can do anything with watercolors, mine are a mess.) howveer, this swap is meant for actual hand illustrated and hand painted envelopes, hence stickers and cut and paste being mentioned as excluded. your partner may not find stamping to be in that realm, so perhaps check with your partner first and be prepared to do it by hand instead if they aren't accepting of stamping.

Sure I could swing something :) I can also copic color the stamped images. I'll figure something out don't worry about me :)

I'm stalking you @NSMAC1 This sounded too good to pass up. I'm curious about stamping on the envie too...i have beautiful Egyptian stamps i'd love to use. I'll have to see who I get as a partner and see as the hostess suggests.... :)

Oh my well I made my envelope tonight, it definately made me think outside the box. My partner let me use stamped images but I doodled too :) I haven't doodled in....well forever, maybe in highshool LOL. Hope she likes it....
