Monthly Mail Art with Kristina Werner – February 2018
Hello all! Kristina here! Today I have a fun rainbow birthday envelope for you featuring stamps from Pretty Pink Posh.
I first watercolored some rainbow stripes onto watercolor paper using watercolors from Sakura Koi. (I used a separate piece of watercolor paper that I adhered to a black envelope after the design was complete). After it was dry, I stamped and white heat embossed some of the images from Pretty Pink Posh’s Birthday Friends stamp set. Then I added shading to the images using a faint gray watercolor.
NOTE: The mailing address is used with permission. Thanks, Caroline!
Caroline’s name was written using a bold Gelly Roll pen, and her mailing address was written with an extra fine Pilot Envelope Addressing Pen.
I hope you enjoy the video of today’s envelope! Thanks for stopping by!
Kristina, I love how you make things so simple yet so amazing. You are talented beyond belief.

I love the envelope!! Super cute!! I’ve noticed the last couple of envelopes that you’ve done were on watercolor paper and then adhered them onto the envelope, never would have thought to do that. Better than making your own envelope in my opinion! I love this idea!! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!!
