Stunning Sugar Skull

Hello, Halloween lovers, it's the witching month!

I am not sure how I managed to not blog this amazing envelope when Cathy sent it in 2017, but it is worth the wait. Inside a protective plastic cover...

..and unwrapped.

And it came with a nice autumnal card inside.


  1. A very well done skull Nice to see you posting again Halloween is very near and scary things in the post are a must Hester

  2. You're back!
    I almost missed your name and address on the mask / skull
    this is so well done.

  3. No doubt it is worth showing. Wow, I'm impressed by this work!

    1. Me, too. It is one of those works where I could say I could never achieve this myself, so I should give up! :)

  4. 10th World False Artist Stamp Day

    The World Stamp Day Committee has the honor to announce that La Maison du Patrimoine in Villard de Lans France, will host the 10th World False Artist Stamp Day along the 30th Festival of Humor and Creation which i'll take place from 29/10 to 2/11/2019 in Villard de Lans) http://festivalvdl.com.

    All the works received will be exhibited during the festival at the Maison du Patrimoine https://www.villarddelans.com/ete/home-patrimoine.html and La Coupole (village fest hall). As I am one of the guests of the festival, I will be your postman at POSTENOMADE (I make a real/fake post office) for the whole period at La Coupole. http://postenomade.over-blog.com

    To better expose your works, you can already send your letters from today until 2 November 2019 to: La Maison du Patrimoine – Place de la Libération –38250 Villard de Lans – France, one or more envelopes with a single request: a false stamp instead of official postage.

    So, the 3rd Thursday of November (this year the 21st) remains and will remain the World False Artist Stamp Day.
    That day too, you can enjoy to write to me if you want, rewrite to your friends and various acquaintances ...
    Let your creativity go far away. Any technique is allowed (collage, wool, drawings, watercolor, gouache, photos, objects, etc.).

    Put on the envelope the words "10ème Journée Mondiale du Faux Timbre d'Artiste" or simply "10ème JMFTA".

    ATTENTION: do not stick any real stamp on the envelope because the sending will have no more artistic value and could be refused !!!
    Thank you for passing this call to your networks or to your acquaintances.

    Very Important: scan or photograph your envelope before posting it, and send the visual by email to: tonyaime@orange.fr

    All creations will be published in preview in Postenomade (my blog dedicated to the Postal Art) http://postenomade.over-blog.com
