Emboss Resist with Blending – Monthly Mail Art with Kristina Werner, October 2018
Hello, all! Kristina here with another Monthly Mail Art! For this envelope, I did some heat embossing and ink blending. :)
I started out by stamping the large floral image from the Sketched Flowers stamp set along the left and bottom edges of a white envelope in VersaMark ink. I applied white embossing powder to the stamped flowers and then heat set it.
To add color to the envelope, I used sponge daubers and five colors of Distress Ink: Fired Brick, Seedless Preserves, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, and Bundled Sage. The heat embossed lines resisted the ink and I was left with a pristine white lined image.
To finished off the envelope, I used one of the colors in the Finetec 6-color set for the address.

Thanks for stopping by today! :)
A super treat for Shirley. Beautiful work Kristina
Simply stunning. If I were Shirley, I would be framing it when it arrives.
Very pretty envelope! Love how the ink colors blend together.
Kristina is the one that got me started decorating my envelopes. I would have never thought to do so other wise. Now this is another idea for decorating. This is absolutely beautiful!! I loved the October kit and have made a few cards. Now I will decorate the envelopes for them!! Thank you for a wonderful new idea.
Such a pretty envelope!
This is one of my favorites of your mail art, Kristina! Bravo!
Beautiful envelope! I just love this beautiful stamp set and you’ve given me another idea of how to quickly color that large stamp!
Your envelopes are always amazing, Kristina. Question though – Where do you find all those amazing stamps?!
I love all your envelopes, and you have inspired me to try to be a bit more creative in decorating my own. How do you know how much postage to use? I never know how much my cards will require, so I always carry them to the post office. I would be so horrified if my recipient would have to pay extra postage.
More than an envelope this is a piece of art. Beautiful Kristina! TFS
What a gorgeous envelope! I even love the stamps she selected for this.
I’m always afraid my letters
will go in the junque box at
the PO if I get to elaborate
The envelope is fantastic.
thanks for sharing
Gorgeous envelope. Love it!
Thanks for the inspiration.
Such an extra special touch to decorate the envelope for the recipient! Beautiful!

It always amazes me how these talented artists make it look so easy! I will give it a try, but expect muddy results. That beautiful lettering… forget about it! Kristina is a master!
Wow! That envelope is so pretty!
GORGEOUS WORK, Kristina!!! LOOOVE the colors you’ve chosen! SO RICH!!!I think the fall/earth colors are like “Jewel Tones!” I ALWAAAYS enjoy your mail art posts!
Question: What about water damage to the address’????
AND I LOOOVE your pen!
WHERE to get one????
Will Simon be carrying them too?
This is an awesome envelope. Love the color combo you used.
Again a great envelope Kristina and thanks for (without knowing)answering my question, if I can use Micro Glaze on top. I wanted to know because I send cards to the other side of the world and I don’t want that my envelope get smudged with wet hands. Thank you for showing this awesome envelope.
That looks amazing! I am going to decorate my envelopes…
The white embossing looks great. It doesn’t stand out too much–it is perfect.
Love how you used the stamp on the envelope and the way you colored, very simple, but very pretty!!! I keep forgetting about the finger daubers :) I have them, but keep forgetting to use them, duh!! Thanks for sharing another beautiful envelope!
What a stunning envelope and I love your handwriting/calligraphy!
