Guess the stamp game week 6

MMSA ran a handmade envelope challenge - perfect for me!

I sent in 5 envelopes for the exchange and one for the host. As a mini-bonus for the recipients I included a stamp inside the envelope.

The game is for you to see if you can guess which stamp I included for each envelope.

Answer to last week's game:

Pioneers of American Industrial Design stamp (the Eliot Noyes purple one with the typewriter).

Hester posted her guesses just in time, however neither she nor Jean was close, so Hester's still on 2 points with Jean on 1.5. 

And a hint - all six envelopes and different stamps.


Todays envelope: # 189

Next week I'll have the final answer for anyone who's been playing along.

    1. I don't have any eames stamps, sadly, and I don't think I could have parted with them for this swap even if I did have some. Would have been a great stamp (I guess I would have needed two) for this envelope.

  2. I think one of the Song Birds would look great on this envelope. The Oriole one with the bird looking down...

    1. I never thought about using an organic stamp on this abstract envelope - you're right, it would have looked very good. Maybe the oriole would be thinking that the lines are just bright nesting material?
