Envelope Art

Hello everyone!  It's Anita here today to share a new project with all of you!

Marie, the owner of The Greeting Farm, challenged the DT to try out some envelope art.  I've seen some amazing envelopes out there in blogland so this was just the push I needed to give it a try.  I used images from three different stamp sets:  Make A Splash, Happy To Sea You , and Hands Down.


I started my project by writing the address on the envelope so I would know where I could stamp the images.  I stamped some of the images and then masked them in order to stamp the images in the background.  I fussy cut masks for all of the images and sponged some Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs distress inks on the bottom of the envelope.  Then I sponged Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, and Blueprint Sketch distress inks to create the ocean.  After my sponging was completed, I removed all the masks and colored the images with copics.  Since my envelope wasn't really copic-friendly, I kept my shading to a minimum.  While I'm glad I finally tried some envelope art, I will say it's somewhat time-consuming (mostly because of all the masking). 


Copics Used:

Octopus - RV55, RV63

Dolphin - B26, B24, B21

Fish - YR04, YR02

Starfish - Y18, Y15, Y13

Rocks - C3, C1

Seaweed - YG17,YG03,YG01

Coral - RV55, RV63

Treasure Chest - E23, E21


Thanks for stopping by!


Hugs, Anita
