Man In The Moon Postcard

It's been awhile since I've participated in the Sunday Postcard Art challenge.  When this week's theme came up for art with the Man In The Moon, I had to make a postcard and participate.  I recently came across this altered envelope on Pinterest, which is what was inspiring me.  I worked with thoughts of space and mail.  I actually found a couple of postage stamps to work into the design as well as using scrapbook paper, some Washi tape and rubber stamps.


You know the correspondence side is ready to go also.


Good Mail Day!

I am totally in love with the Moon and it's magical glow. Great postcard to honor Mr. Moon. I have just completed Love Notes which is three weeks of mailing a postcard to a swap partner. It is so easy to do and happens four times a year. Just Google Love Notes or Jennifer Beltoff for info if you want to participate. Wonderful Week Dear...

Clever use of postage stamps and washi tapes, and that is a very gentle looking moon. Good use of the colours too. The way you frame with the stripes gives it the perfect finishing touch.

I always knew they had crows on the moon! Those birds go everywhere. Fun collection of lunar stamps!

All that on one little post card? What a deal!! Where did you get all of that stuff anyway? The stamp with the earth on it is quite appropriate. And what could be better to take a card by air mail than a bird!!!!!! You are so good.
