Center Rainbow Stamping – Monthly Mail Art with Kristina Werner, August 2018

Hello, all! Kristina Werner here. For this month’s Mail Art, I created a center rainbow stamped envelope using the Folk Dance Background stamp and four Distress Oxide Ink colors. This technique is fun, quick, and packs a statement!

I started by stamping only the yellow shade, Squeezed Lemonade, in the center area of the envelope. Before stamping, I used a paper towel to dab away some of the ink around the yellow area (to soften the color where it would transition to the orange).

Then I inked up the stamp using an orange color of ink, Carved Pumpkin (the yellow ink was still visible on the stamp–I did not clean the stamp before moving onto the next color). Before stamping, like with the yellow ink, I used a paper towel to dab away some of the ink around the outer edge of the orange ink. I also dabbed away some of the orange ink around the inner ring of ink. Then I stamped the background stamp in the exact same spot.

I repeated those steps to add the remaining two colors, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet. To finish the background, I ink blended Wilted Violet ink around the edges of the envelope.

For the address, I used an Extra Fine Sharpie marker.
