Mail Art: In and Out

Here is a new piece that's outgoing to California. The theme was winter, so I used a transfer of a vintage group sledding photo and added it to an envelope I made from "wintery" paper. On the back is a polar bear stamp I recently made (more on that soon).

The other stamps - blue "stars" - are purchased.

I must say that I'm pretty pleased with that stamp. I think it was the fourth one I tried. The medium allows for imperfections that's for sure!

And here is a very large envelope I received from China. It contained a small postcard and a bilingual letter from Ji Xiang Hua of Shanghai. The envelope is quite thick, almost with a plasticized coating, and the stamp is part of the envelope.
