Floral Fantasy - slide mount mailer

I signed up for a 'Floral Fantasy' swap on CCSwaps. I feel good about this piece because I was able to use some items I've had in my stash for a long time. I covered a double slide mailer with some floral vellum. When I painted the inside and sides of the mailer with lumiere I also painted the edges on the outside of the mailer. I had the perfect stamp to use on the cover. Then I sprayed a couple of fabric flowers with my Aileen's spray mists and attached with a decorative brad.
This is the inside of the slide mailer. I covered the left side with the same vellum I had used on the outside. I painted the right side and the edges with gold lumiere paint. The image on the left was taken off the internet and printed onto a transparency. I used my xyron to attach the transparency to a piece of blue cardstock and then onto the left inside of the mailer.

Under the glass slides are images I stamped on alcohol ink backgrounds. After attaching the images I set the glass in using a few drops of glossy accents. I also added some small glass beads in the top of the insert.

On the back of the slide mailer I added an altered slide mount that I had received some time ago in another swap that was sponsored on CCSwaps. I wish I could remember who created it so that I could give her credit here, but I can't remember as that swap was so long ago.

This floral fantasy swap has not yet closed so I don't know who my partner will be. Whoever she is I hope she enjoys what I created.
