MAIL CALL 2020 – Yes, it’s back! (plus no-line watercoloring)

Happy Friday, all! I’m back after a much needed holiday break. I hope your holiday time was wonderful!

I’m starting off this new year by bringing back Mail Call! The last Mail Call was in February 2017, so I’m excited to bring it back!

The Mail Call theme for January 2020 is Valentine’s/Love, so I created a watercolor card using the Crafted With Love stamp set from Mama Elephant. I stamped one of the bunny images in Antique Linen Distress Ink and painted using the no-line watercoloring technique.

For the background on the card, I did some ink smooshing using six colors of Distress Ink: Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Blueprint Sketch, and Wilted Violet.

The card was finished off with a greeting from the Occasional Labels stamp set, also from Mama Elephant.

  1. Create a card based on one of the monthly themes. Make sure to leave the inside of the card free of any personalize message. The card will be passed on to a card drive or donated to an organization or cause.
  2. Download THIS PDF, cut it into four smaller forms, and fill out one form for your card. If you are sending more than one card, please fill out a form for each card and slip the forms inside the cards so I know which is which. Only cards with forms will be shown in videos.
  3. If you would like your card returned to you, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope.
  4. Mail your card(s) to:

    Kristina Werner

    This address is also on the form.

And that’s it! I’ll be sharing a video with each month’s theme sometime during the first week of the following month (i.e. the June Mail Call video will be share the first week in July).
