Yogi's Decorated Envelope Exchange 2008 "Env1108_Bernice S"


Size: 5.25" h x 7.25" w

I used a Arches Text Wove for this envelope. I recently learnt this split Uncial style of lettering in a class taught by Georgia Angelopoulos. Loved it so thought I'd use it where ever possible Big Grin. I used an empty 6.0 Parallel Pen and Ecoline inks (Scarlet, Deep Yellow, Prussian Blue & Deep Green). The colors mimic this year's Xmas stamps. The trousers on the stamp have white lines and patterns running through it and I tried doing it with a white Ranger's Inkssentials pen, but that didn't works so well, so I tried Dr Martin's Bleed Proof ink, and that didn't work so well either, and I ended up using white acrylic paint. You can still see a bit of the bleed happening from the Ecoline inks. Live and learn.

I used Sakura gel pens for the address and her last name and for the other wavy lines. I used Pan Pastels Ultramarine for the background
