Unstampabelles March challenge Take II

Here is my 2nd piece as guest designer over at Unstampabelles.  Pop over and have a look at all the other inspiring entries, you'll not be disappointed.

Mail Art 'Peace Graffiti'

1. I spent ages getting the words to wrap around the PEACE symbol, once I was happy I traced the design onto the card and went over the lines with a permanent black marker.  This sounds like a simple step but I spent about 2 hours playing with the letters!  
2. Using Chalk Pastels colour in a rainbow over the Peace sign.
3. Make a mask for the rainbow design, I used a post-it.
4. Using a brick wall stencil and distress inks, build up the brick effect and then splatter on some brown ink.

Thanks for looking.  I hope I've inspired you to be creative.
