TMTA - Postage Stamps

The theme this week on Think Monday Think ATC, is postage stamps. I have quite a lot as my friend, Joy sends all her used ones for my collection. I use some for my art & most of them go to the RSPB. I made this card quite quickly during my lunch break as I have a fair bit to do this evening before my tea & as it has poured with rain most of the day, I made use of the good light!!

I stamped text & postage symbols from one of my travel sets of clear stamps onto a cream piece of card cut to ATC size. Then sponged reds, oranges & greens onto it. The red floral is a free stamp from Craft Stamper mag. I then glued on a red vellum envelope that I had made on a previous occasion. (one of my makes when I can't complete a project. I just create envelopes & elements to use on cards & pages so at least I create some sort of art every day!) I glued a stamp in the flap & two onto the card.
