THREE MUSES 99 - MAIL ART


It's Marie's turn to host at the Three Muses this week and she has chosen MAIL ART as her theme.  Here is my MAIL ART envelope interpretation of a day in the life of Marie Antoinette which will be winging its way to Miss Peppa Pig later this week together with an ATC of the same theme!

Great theme Marie.

Credit to Honey designs for the cakes and postmarks and penny black.  The 'Queen Waving' stamp is one of my own and the remainder is in the public domain.  Fonts are Apple Chancery and Giddyup std.

Thank you for looking.

Ann, this is delicious (in more ways than one) but I have itchy fingers and a tissue in hand to wipe the chocky mess off Marie's face!! Fantastic and funny artwork. I love it.

A bit of silliness is always good, especially when it involves cupcakes. :)
