I’m back with another year of Monthly Mail Art! I’m so excited to start of 2018 with a fun, watercolored envelope.
I love the soft blue color of a Metallic Sea Glass Envelope, but also wanted to watercolor the images from the new Best Friends stamp set. Watercoloring on the envelope wouldn’t give a good result, so I decided to cut a piece of Strathmore Cold Press Watercolor paper to the size of the envelope, paint my scene, and then adhere the watercolor paper to the envelope. You could also create a custom envelope out of watercolor paper if you wanted to skip the adhering step.
After stamping the animals image from the Best Friends stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink, I watercolored the scene using Distress Inks. And I addressed the envelope using an Extra Fine Envelope Addressing Pen from Pilot.
NOTE: Mailing address used with permission. Thanks, Vicki!
To make sure the watercolor paper was adhered completely on the edges, I used X-Press It Tape. This allowed me to apply the adhesive right up to the cut edge of the watercolor paper. I pressed the watercolor piece onto the envelope and then added my return address to the flap on the back.
I hope you enjoy today’s envelope video! Thanks for stopping by!
