Envelopes


The theme for this weeks Wednesday Stamper is envelopes. I have never decorated an envelope before so I thought I'd give it a go and see what happens. As I had never done one of these before I thought I'd try a new style for me as well and I must say I am pretty pleased how it turned out.


The background is done with acrylic paints. The image I downloaded from Art-E-Zine and the swirls are by Heidi Swapp, stamped, embossed, cut out and then just used the bits I wanted.
