Making the best of a this mail situation (no pun intended!) I printed out a copy of my image and decided to play. I am really hoping to find my set at the post office in the morning!!! If not I have a few other tricks up my sleeve.
So without further ado.... I present Mailbox Greetings. Mailbox Greetings is a set for all seasons and for all occasions. You will find greetings and "stamps" to help dress up your mailboxes throughout the year. As you will see below, I have added some spring touches! But don't leave sentiments for Birthdays, Christmas, Easter and more!
I began today's card by "inking up" (in my case printing *lol*) the mailboxes. Then I coloured it using my Copic markers. Of course you can colour the mailboxes with any medium you choose. I included the colours I used in the supplies below. I also "stamped" my grass. This is a solid stamp so the colour is easy...just ink then stamp!
I cut a card base at 4x5 using Kraft paper.
Following Pine's awesome tutorial, I applied my paint to the stamp using a foam brush and then stamped it on my paper. Since paint takes a while to dry, I heat set it for fast results. You could also stamp it and leave it overnight.
Once my paper was dry, I stitched it to the card which measures 4.5x 5.5
Then I stitched the mailboxes and the red base.
And voila! The card came together.
