The Lost Coast Design Team have created some fabulous eye candy for your inspiration!

Let's get the party started! 

Her is mail art I made created using the Cityscape stamp from Lost Coast Designs :

Here is mail art I have made using  one of the new images from Lost Coast Designs :

I have used the Cityscape image, stamped in black and added some white gel pen details :

 I have actually stamped around the whole envelope so the Cityscape is continuous : Here is the back and front of the envelopes : 
The envelope is sponged in distress ink, then I have used the journaling guide stencil to add another layer of interest by sponging in the same colour over the top. Once I get some nice and colour co-ordinated postage stamps on there it will look even better I think :)

Please come and join us at our portal to creativity, it will be fun :)
