Lettering, Mail Art

Mail Art with Karin Brushmarker PRO Markers (Brush Lettering)

Happy Thursday! Today I have another mail art envelope for you! This time I wanted to do a bit of brush lettering and blending with Karin markers. These markers are so juicy! They are perfect both watercoloring and lettering.

(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 creating an envelope out of watercolor paper using the 1-2-3 Punch Board. Then I lettered Susan’s name on the envelope using a Magenta marker from Karin.

To add the purple shade, I colored just a bit of the purple on the top and bottom of each letter and then using the blender marker to spread out the color and mix it with the magenta.

To finish off the envelope, I drew a simple banner shape and colored it in using a black Sharpie marker. Then I added the street address to the banner using a white Gelly Roll pen.

NOTE: Address used with permission. Thanks, Allison! To submit your address for use on future mail art envelopes, please fill out this form. There is a new form each month to keep addresses current.

To protect the envelope from the elements or any potential smudging, I coated the name and address area with Distress Micro Glaze. This protects it from any moisture that the envelope might encounter while in transit.

I added a bit of postage and the envelope is complete!

Thanks for stopping by today! You can see more of my mail art on my instagram.
