While we're working on the First Craftster ATC Swap -- here's another crafty mailart-oriented challenge!

There is no prize! There is no deadline!
There are no entry forms!
It's purely craft for craft's sake!
The sky's the limit! Knock yourself out!

Hopefully there will lots and lots of Craftster mailart swaps so have yourself a barrel of fun by designing your very own swanky, personalized...
wait for it...

MAILART MOB STICKER!
Yes. The "Mailart Mob" sticker! Your own little way of letting the recipient know that there's something graphically yummy inside that envelope! (As opposed to the usual invoice or past due reminder...)
Plus it gives the friendly folks at the postal service something to chuckle about...


(People also make other cool little graphic ditties to stick on their envies. Stamped images, stickers, found graphics (groovy stuff lifted from adverts, etc.) -- whatever! And while you're at it, you can of course (and I know most of you guys know this stuff -- but there are some newbies in the swap  Wink) , make yourself a whack of cool envies from old newspaper, comic books, gift wrap, magazines and/or junk mail!)

The Craftster Mailart Mob -- Kinda Like The Sopranos.
Only Not. (Bada-bing.)  Tongue

The stickers might look like this. hehehe (I hope designing stickers counts as a "craft" -- I have been wanting to post forever and have no digi. cam. and just figured out how to do this. yay! for hotlinking! At least, I think that's what it's called...)  Tongue

Or this:



The othe logos have different tag-lines that say things like:

MailArt Mob:
                               This Time It's Personal. And Confidential.
                               Unlike that other Mob, We'll Let You Leave.
                               Deliver This Let-tah. The Soo-nah the Bet-tah.

When I read Indie's challenge, my first thought was of a violin case with a glue gun in it.

My other idea was to make a stamp image of an angry mob.  I'm working on it now, but it's complicated and is taking a long time.

Given my total-newbie level of rubber stamp carving, I probably should have gone with my first idea, but life's too short to take the safe route every time!

so does it have to look like the previous ones, just with different slogan-type-things? or just whatever looks good for the MAM?
