I did this
Mail art envelope
a while ago.
A different kind of mail art.
I’ve made these cards using corners of old postcards. I collect postage stamps and I often buy them as “cut-offs”, saving money by washing off the used stamps myself. I keep the nicest postcard corners and assemble them into these Frankenstein cards.
I call the first one Frolic and the second one Up and away
That’s fantastic @metlodyt! I like your postcards’ style!
Thank you @Speicher3! I really like your Mail Disorder card! The overlapping stamps really tie it together. Have you made more?
Yes, I’ve made a lot of stuff, mostly with rubber stamps and paper snippets. Here’s another one:
Do you have more of your great Frankensteins?
Really interesting! The cutting would drive me crazy (especially the second card)
That is a great card @Speicher3! I love your whole SENT wall. Great humor and a sense for the odd and graphical. Really inspired me to make/send cooler postcards.
@Savagepink your collages are so good! Most of my cards are images I cut out of old books. I usually don’t do much with them, but your style is super inspiring!
@nekelin I love these! Glad to know I’m not the only mad postcard scientist. Do you get the card pieces from stamp collecting too?
Beautiful backsides! I’m always extra happy with something like that.
Thank you! Actually it’s an idea that had been floating around in my head for quite some time. I like making collages and I wanted to use all the cards that people send me to make something. First I started with cutting of the stamps, and then I was left with this other piece of card that I didn’t want to throw away. That’s when I started puzzling them together. The first ones I made were for World Postcard Day, to celebrate all the beautiful cards I had received so far.
They look beautiful!
(And I have to ask the following. We are talking about opening a new tag, the Decorated Wildcard Tag. This is where we talk about it. Would you be interested?)
Thank you so much!
I just responded to support the tag. It sounds interesting, thanks for sharing!
Aww, thank you so much
I love receiving decorated backs so I do the same for the people I send to
I used to have a lot of chiped and not in good condition stamps and then I started to make collages on postcards. Now, I don’t have any stamps to use, anyone have some chiped stamps for me?
