MAIL ART ENVELOPE with Heat Emboss Resist + Ink Blending

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

Hello, all! I’m back with another Monthly Mail Art! For this envelope, I did some heat embossing and ink blending. :)

(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).

I started out by stamping the large floral image from the Sketched Flowers stamp set along the left and bottom edges of a white envelope in VersaMark ink. I applied white embossing powder to the stamped flowers and then heat set it.

To add color to the envelope, I used sponge daubers and five colors of Distress Ink: Fired BrickSeedless PreservesFossilized AmberSpiced Marmalade, and Bundled Sage. The heat embossed lines resisted the ink and I was left with a pristine white lined image.

To finished off the envelope, I used one of the colors in the Finetec 6-color set for the address and an oblique pen holder. For more info on the vintage postage I used, see this page.
