Snowflakes & Red Watercolor Mail Art Envelope

Hi all! I’m back with a second blog post today, this time showing an addition to my Mail Art Rainbow (you can see all my envelopes at Instagram with the #mailartrainbow hashtag).

(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 was first created using the 1-2-3 Punch Board and watercolor paper. Then I painted the background of the envelope using Gansai Tambi watercolors.

Once day, I stenciled on VersaMark ink using the Snowflakes stencil from Simon Says Stamp, and white heat embossed the snowflakes.

Rosalie’s address was added using white gouache, and then the envelope was sealed and protected by adding a thin coat of Distress Micro Glaze.

NOTE: Address used with permission. Thanks, Rosalie! 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.

Thanks for stopping by!
