R is for Red

Here is a set of stamps I used on a package with a red theme.



The stamps celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, the Year of the Rooster, Diwali, Summer Harvest, Forever Love and the 75th anniversary of Wonder Woman.

Art in a Box part 16

The 16th piece of art form the box is a feather (a bit hard to appreciate from the scan) with a poem on the back, titled 'Icarus', from Vangelis.

Art in a Box part 15

Another piece of art from the box. This piece from Liza has a lot of texture to it - it made me think of a wave on the beach.

Q is for Quilled Heart

The watercolor calendar envelopes work well with other stamps, too. Here is the Quilled Heart stamp on envelope 778 (and the 2015 non-machinable butterfly on 779).



Quilling is the art of using scrolled paper to make 3D artistic compositions. Wikipedia has some info, but better is to google  'quilling' to look for images, many of which are stunning.

The Quilled Heart stamp is the 2016 entry into the USPS Love series. Digital images of this stamp do seem more vibrant and show more detail than the actual stamp, although it has grown on me.
