Hi WIYM swappers!

Here's the next in our match-a-stamp mail art series and here's what to do:

  • select a postage stamp(s) you'd like to use to mail an envie to your partner

  • decorate your envie in some way (drawing, washi, collage, paint, etc) to 'match' the stamp you chose.

  • write a little note, include a flat surprise, and mail it off to your partner!

Here are some examples of ways you can 'match' your stamp:

  • create a blue collage to match a blue postage stamp

  • use a butterfly stamp and draw/paint butterflies or use butterfly stickers on your envelope

  • make an envelope out of flowered paper and use flower stamps to mail your envelope

Hope you'll join me in some creative fun!

Oh, that's so nice to hear! I love to do these and will try to continue them with a short time between each. Glad to know others enjoy them!

Can you make a certain breed of dog envelope and put another breed of dog stamp on it?

Yes, of course . . . a dog is a dog
