Artful Envelopes



I've long-admired the art of stamping on envelopes. I must admit, I've been gun-shy about the process. So, I have an opportunity, this month, to stamp these envelopes for a group project I'm involved in. A lot of masking, of course, went into creating these envelopes. They are both completely flat (single layer stamping and masking). On the first envelope, I used stamps by Lost Coast Designs, Leavenworth Jackson, Stamp Francisco, Rubberstamp Avenue, and Invoke Arts. On the second envelope, I used stamps by Teesha Moore, Purple Onion Designs, Stampsmith and Invoke Arts. Black ink is Stewart Superior Memories Black ink. All of the vibrant colors are courtesy of Nick Bantock inks by Ranger. Thanks for stopping by!

Ethel, these are FANTASTIC! Nothing is more fun than to receive mail with an artful outer cover and these are so beautiful, bright, interesting...just spectacular! I wouldn't even mind if there was nothing inside the envelope...these are art in and of themselves!
