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!
So fun with the rainbow colors.
Love the colors!
Lovely, getting an envelope like this in the mail would be so awesome!
What a fun way to dress up an envelope. Thanks for the inspiration.
this would be so exciting to receive. I wonder what the postal service comments were as it travels across the states. I love your creative envelopes.
The stripes look so cool. I love the white embossing over them.
Colorful and lovely creation :)

Your envelopes amaze me Kristina! I couldn’t imagine getting something so pretty in the mail. ;)
If this one doesn’t stand out between the simple plain coloured and white ones…
Oh wow, that’s so cool! Definitely giving this a go :)
This is beautiful! I haven’t done much mail art but I really need to get into it – you make it look so easy!
Love those stripes. That little bit of shading on the stamps made an amazing difference. Way cool!
Super fun and colourful envelope!
So happy and fun! Thanks for doing these mail art videos because it really helps with the information when I need to mail out my cards as I always worry about it!
