Clean & Simple Mail Art – Ink Blending with a Stencil

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

Hello, all! I’m back again with more mail art! Last month’s Mail Art video (you can see it HERE) was a bit intense, so at the request of some of you, this month I created something more clean and minimal. This is a super easy (and yet striking) design.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

The envelope I decorated is one of Simon’s envelopes and it was perfect for ink blending. I used the new Tap Dance stencil and ink blending to create a soft, quiet background for the envelope. The four colors of Simon ink that I used are Fog, Duckling, Catkin, and Mint.

After ink blending the background, I drew “wonky” lines in pencil to serve as guides for writing Tracy’s address.

NOTE: Address used with permission. Thanks, Tracy!

I used the extra fine Pilot Envelope Address Pen to write the address. I LOVE this pen! Not only is it waterproof, but it seems to last forever. :)

Anyhow, I hope you enjoy this month’s Mail Art. Thanks for stopping by!
