Happy Hump day!
Today I want to share a piece of mail art I created for this weeks mail art challenge theme for Stampotique Originals.
(check us out for more inspiration HERE)
you can add a project for this challenge HERE(or just check out some more inspiration)
To start I made a 6x6 envelope on my envelope punch board. I stamped the adorable "FoFe" on the left side then found a scrap to create a mask for my address block. I also masked off "Fofe".
(sorry I forgot to take a picture of the beginning stage)
(stamp links at bottom)
Next I inked my background with distress inks: cracked pistachio, lucky clover, and twisted citron.
(yes its scary at this point... and going to get scarier! )
Ok, now I stamped all of my background stamps in the same greens I used for the base colors. For the black images I used black archival ink.
(see looks scarier ... but don't panic)
Ok, now I removed my masks so I can begin to color. I colored this piece with the zig clean color brush markers. You can see the green I used on the hearts below
Once everything is colored I added some white ink and gel pens to help everything pop.
I also added some water spots for more visual interest.
I hope you Enjoyed this piece, and I hope it inspires you to join us!
