Today I'm sharing something a little different, not a card...an envelope! I try to participate as often as I can in The East Wind challenges and this time the theme is 'mail art'. This really appealed to me as it's something a little out of the ordinary...so I thought I'd snazz up a plain manilla envelope. I printed this amazing image, Mad Hatter, directly onto the envelope and then masked both the image and a (wobbly) rectangle. The background stamp is Designs by Ryn, part of a set of background/ texture stamps, which I stamped repeatedly to cover the envelope. I doodled a border around the address panel with a black pen and a white gel pen then coloured my Mad Hatter with copics .and coloured pencils.I found this quite challenging as the copics react very differently to using them on smooth white stamping card!
I'm really pleased with the finished result and can't wait to send it to my lovely friend...she also makes cards and her envelopes are always a work of art covered with messages and doodles, so I know she'll love it!
Thanks for visiting today, have a great evening!
