Marie, the owner of The Greeting Farm, challenged the DT to try out some envelope art. I've seen some amazing envelopes out in blogland so this was just the push I needed to give it a try. I used images from three different stamps sets to create my underwater scene: Make A Splash, Happy To Sea You, and Hands Down. I started by writing the address on my 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 to create the ocean. After my ink 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 was very time-consuming (mostly because of all the masking) so it's probably not something I will do often lol.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
