stampotique challenge time

this week at the stampotiqe challenge, sam has asked us to recycle something.  i took an unused bill envelope and altered it.
i painted it with acrylic paints.  i glued a magazine photo into the inside of the envelope after i altered it slightly.  to make the address label i used my rubber stamp steampunk border and colored it in with gel pens and paint markers. 
the sentiment just be u is one of my rubber stamps.  i altered that with gel pens and paint pens, too.  i used the rubber stamp seaweed  as well.
if you would like to join in on the fun you can find all about the details by clicking the above link.  if you play you will have a chance to win a $30.00 gift certificate towards Stampotique stamps, and really, who couldn't use more stamps?!
