Today, for VivaLasVegaStamps!, I am sharing a mail art envelope with you. It is a little tutorial so sit back and enjoy !
First of all the finished envelope :
And the back.
Here's how I made it:
I started out with a standard envelope. Of course you could use or make any size you want.
First thing I did, was mask off the address section with a bit of post-it tape. You see I have used this before !
I decided to use acrylic paints and a brayer to create my background. It will be more weather proof with acrylic paint as well.
Here's how it looked when I just started rolling on the paint...
I used: Orange, pink, green and turquoise..
After I finished rolling the paint I took off the mask.
Next is stamping ! My favourite bit !
Here is a 'halfway'look....I used different colours of ink to stamp the background.
A bit more stamping....I also doodled around the address space with a black marker.
Here, the stamping is finished and I thought it needed some white.....
So here is the finished product with white stencilling added.... Hope you like it....
Of course I couldn't ignore the back of the envelope....
I used the following stamps:
Thank you so much for stopping by today !
