Hello, all! Today's post is part of a blog hop celebrating Altenew's 6th Anniversary! Be sure to check out the blog hop and GIVEAWAY info below today's project.
Speaking of today's project, I created a mail art envelope using the
Fabulous Florets stamps
and two watercolor pan sets from Altenew.
(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).
I started out by creating a watercolor paper envelope using the
1-2-3 Punch Board
for why I recommend this punch board over the Envelope Punch Board). Then I stamped images from the
Fabulous Florets stamp set
Antique Linen Distress Ink
. This lighter colored ink is perfect to the no-line watercoloring technique.
For watercoloring the envelope, I used
Altenew's Artist Watercolor 24 pan set
, as well as adding gold accents and splatters using the
Metallic Watercolor pan set
The area for the address was created by painting dark navy stripes and then using the
gold metallic paint
to write Tami's address.
NOTE: Address used with permission. Thanks, Tami!

to the envelope, adhered the bottom flap up to form the envelope, and then coated the envelope with
Distress Micro Glaze
(which will protect it from moisture).
