envelope swap

well, finally some new artwork, so that calls for a blog update and post!

here are pictures of some envelopes that i stamped to send in for an envelope swap. these are white envelopes, stamped w/ yellow, green, and burgundy colors. the 3 colors were used to blot color on the background before stamping the leaf pattern.

this picture shows the back of the envelope where the addresses go -


this is the flap side of the envelopes -

this swap is really cool in that the participant can send in 5 or 10 decorated envelopes and $3. then the swap hostess sends the participant back 5 or 10 envelopes from different artists. i will now receive 10 envelopes back from the swap to use in my future mailings.

I'd love to do a swap like this. Anyone else in EDM interested? Do you have a link to this project?

This is really kind of neat. I don't have much luck with swaps, so I wouldn't involve myself in those, but using self-decoration on personal correspondence seems a good alternative.

Jill, they're beautiful! I don't know if I could part with anything so pretty that I'd created myself - although it must be exciting to expect something different in return :)
