Summer of Colour #1 - Rainbow Sherbet


Decided to join in the fun at Summer of Colour this year. I don't often get the chance to use such vibrant colours so really enjoyed making this ATC.

Hi Sweetie - just heading over to explain mail art, basically art that is created with the sole intention of sending it through the mailing system to a recipient, yes sometimes it gets battered and bruised but when it's received its a delight when compared to the usual brown lettered bills that we get. Mail art really can brighten your day, I've recently been in exchange on a mail art swap and it's such fun to receive and to send. In this instance no envelopes just postcards which often leave Mr or Mrs Postie smiling as well! Drop me another comment with your address - I won't post your comment but I will send you a piece of mail art to see what you think! Hugs

Hi BJ, gorgeous, vibrant ATC - love it. And I think I may have a go at this challenge too - it looks like fun. Better get my skates on then, I only have until noon today!

Linda R said...
