Mail art

The Three Muses have challenged us to make an art envelope. Couldn't resist this one, so here it is:


I started by stamping on some images, words and patterns (all Tim Holtz) and then coloured some of these with acrylic paint. Using Glimmer Mist, I sprayed some additional colour over the envelope, having masked off a small area for the address. Unfortunately the picture doesn't really show the sparkle, but believe you me it is there! I then highlighted some of the images with metallic gel pens.

Now, what shall I put in it and who shall I send it to?
