My necklace is home!

My necklace has returned home and it is beautiful.  I will be posting each charm and telling who it is from.  This has really been a learning experience and I have loved it!  I just feel sorry for the first person who received a charm from me.  LOL  Of course, everyone is saying that they got better as the round robin advanced.  I thought I would wear this necklace, but it is so heavy!  It seems impossible that nearly a year has gone by while we were sending these necklaces around.  But isn't that they way with time?  ")

Mail Art for Pat

I painted grunge paper with purple glaze and turquoise paint.  I laid a mask down to cover the area for Pat's address and divided the postcard into three sections and used rubber stamps of different font styles for the words on the front.  Then I used a ruler and a Sharpie to draw in the lines and dots.

On the back of the postcard, I used various rubber stamps of ladies and girls.  I used Copic markers and colored pencils to color in the images.  The paper in the middle of the postcard already had "HAPPINESS" printed on it.  I added the stamped flowers.  I also added the lines, dots and dashes in the blank areas.  I'm glad to say it arrived safely in the UK.  :)
