Monthly Mail Art with Kristina Werner – November 2017

Happy Friday, all! Kristina here with another Monthly Mail Art installment. :)

For this month’s envelope, I thought I would create a festive, holiday-themed envelope. I used Avery Elle’s Festive Wreath stamp set to stamp a large wreath in the center of a white envelope. I then used Prismacolor colored pencils to color the wreath.

The envelope seemed a bit blank, so I then used a large dot stencil and Pumice Stone Distress Ink to add a pattern to the area outside of the wreath. I did the same thing last month to finish that envelope scene. This does the same effect for this envelope. It helps it to look finished. :)

For a bit of shimmer, I added some Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen in clear to the red berries on the wreath. The mailing address was written with a Pilot Envelope Addressing pen.

Thanks for stopping by today! :)

  1. I love this envelope!! I’m always so scared to do envelopes, LOL!! Don’t know why, but they intimate me, maybe that can be one of your Online Card Classes, hahaha!! I always love watching you do them, maybe I just need to get up the nerve and do one! Thanks for sharing and always inspiring us!!

  2. Beautiful envelope! Thanks so much for showing us the “how-to,” especially the coloring. I hardly use my Prismacolors, as I’m never sure what to do, but this was very helpful. I’ll use them today on my Christmas cards!

  3. Love how you do your envelopes!! Going to try this on my Christmas cards this year!! Thanks so much for the great tutorials/videos!!

  4. Avery Elle always has such beautiful stamps. Their products are so versatile. I love prismacolors and will have to give these two a try together.
