Monoprinted mail art envelopes

I don’t think sending snail mail should be boring! A gorgeous and bright mail art envelope tends to bring a smile to everyone that comes in contact with it. Here’s how I created a few to send out recently.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. This post also contains affiliate links. The opinions I share are solely my own.

That is such a fun effect of monoprinting…you just never know what you will get. The stencils I used for the base layers were Tribal Fish, Spikey Wheels and Corncob Etching, all in the 12×12 size.

I also added the 12×12 Pebbles Tied stencil into the mix. The results were fab! I felt like I had a super set of backgrounds to now add to.

This is definitely one of my favorites in the new collection!

I used two of them the next day and the lady at the post office made a special point of finding the perfect stamps to match!
