THREE MUSES 69 - ART ENVELOPE


It's Marie's turn to host the Three Muses challenge this week and she has chosen the theme of Decorated Art Envelope.

I had lots of fun with this one, especially when I found this shameless young lady taking a dip.

Credit to NumbBumm for the pin and staple, Sherrie JD for the reclining lady, A Crafter's Corner the scroll.  The water and the sky are from my own collection.

Thanks Marie for a very enjoyable challenge.

Thanks for looking.

Fantastic piece, and such an original work for this theme! The way you have made your envelope roll open is super, and there's a nice surprise inside!

Eee, wotta cheeky lass!! Ann, I am blown away by your envelope. I love the very original idea of opening it like a sardine can to reveal the luscious picture inside. This would be the perfect postcard to send from abroad except it may not be acceptable to the Turkish postal authorities!! Great work.

Very saucy - what would the postman say??

Great piece Ann and very clever use of the flap! Maybe you Muses should market these decorated envelopes. I think there's tonnes of untapped potential. Could be nice little earner!
