Yogi's Decorated Envelope Exchange 2008 "Env0908_Barbara G"


Size: 5.25" h x 7.25" w

I used Arches Text Wove and did a variation of the Radiant Batik from Julia Andrus's book Paper Transformed.

I recently bought some gorgeous clear rubber stamp sets by Inkadinkado. They're all based on flourishes incorporating whatever theme for that set, like autumn, or Halloween or Xmas etc. I really love them and have been using them a lot. For this envelope I used the Autumn set. I masked off the address area, then rubber stamped all over the envelope with Perfect Medium ( any clear pigment based stamp pad will work) and clear embossed it. I then sprayed it with various combinations of colors mixed with water and Perfect Pearls - Golden Fluid Acrylic - Jenkin's Green with PP Green Patina; GFA Quinacridone Burnt Orange with PP Forever Red; GFA Iridescent Bright Gold with PP Sunflower Yellow. Dried it well and then used an iron on dry setting between sheets of clean newsprint to remove the clear embossing.

I used a ruling pen to outline the border of the address block with Dr Martin's Copper. Used a copper Sakura Metallic Gel Pen for the name and address then shadow outlined the name only with black.

Then used one of the stamps again with Kaleidacolor "Creole Spice" stamp pad to add a bit more color to the envelope.
