Hi swappers!

For this swap you'll be creating a piece of mail art: the twist is that at least one of the elements of your mail art must 'match' whatever stamp(s) you wish to use. . .

You may create your own envelope or use a ready-made envelope.

Any type of 'art' counts: drawing, painting, collage, washi-ing, etc. If you're not particularly artistic you might even choose to use patterned paper to create an envelope that relates to your stamp(s).

Here's an example:

Draw or paint flowers on a ready-made envelope and finish it off with a couple of flower stamps . . . easy peasy!

Inside the envelope please include an inexpensive flat surprise--sender's choice.

Sound like fun? I hope you'll join me in playing this 'match game!'
