Monthly Mail Art with Kristina Werner – March 2018

Hello, all! Kristina Werner here with another Monthly Mail Art! For this month’s envelope, I thought I would create a scene using the cute dogs from Mama Elephant’s The Dog’s Woof stamp set.

Because I wanted to color the scene using Copic Markers, I opted to create my own custom envelope out of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock (I know this paper works well with Copics). I used the We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board to create the envelope.

I kept the coloring very simple by only doing flat, solid areas of color. Super easy and quick! And with such a large scene to color, fast coloring is appreciated. :)

I finished off the envelope with a bit of ink blending using the Grid stencil from Simon and Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink. Christine’s mailing address was added using an extra fine Pilot Envelope Addressing Pen.

NOTE: Address used with permission.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the envelope.

  1. Fun idea.
    I wonder what the Post Office
    thinks when it sees some of the
    envelopes we embellish.

  2. People must love receiving mail from you as your envelopes and penmanship certainly bring a smile to my face. I haven’t even gotten my envelope punch board out of the box but you make me want to use it. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us!

  3. Gorgeous envelope! I wish I had friends who would appreciate something like this as I’m itching to decorate the boring white envelopes I use.

  4. This is such a cute envelope! I love how you kept the coloring simple but it looks very detailed. Thanks for sharing.
