Lettering, Mail Art

Floral Envelope Mail Art with Colored Pencils

Happy Wednesday, all! (It’s almost Thursday–lol!). Today I have a couple mail art envelope designs for you. When I saw the Floral Corners and Floral Spray stamps from Stacey Yacula over at Purple Onion Designs, I knew they were begging to be used on envelopes! They’re perfect for use with floral postage stamps, too!

(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).

Purple Onion Designs stamps are unmounted. To work with them, I used the stamp press prepped with Tack ‘N Peel that I created a while back. The Tack ‘N Peel makes the surface of the stamp press sticky. See more details in this blog post.

I stamped the Floral Corners stamps and Floral Spray stamp on Neenah Classic Crest white envelopes, and then colored them with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. To finish the envelopes off, I addressed them using an oblique pen holder and black ink.

I also added some postage stamps (see vintage stamp info here).
