No-Line Watercoloring on Envelope – Monthly Mail Art April 2017

Hello all! I’m back with another installment of Monthly Mail Art. This is a feature I do for Simon Says Stamp each month. Thanks, Simon, for letting my share this here at my blog as well. :)

This time I decided to do a bit of stamping in a light ink (Antique Linen Distress Ink) and do some no-line watercoloring. Because I planned to watercolor, I used a 90 lb. watercolor paper for the envelope. I made the envelope using the We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board and then stamped images from the Some Bunny Special stamp set.

I watercolored the fun scene using Kuretake Zig Gansai Tambi watercolors. The address was written in a black brush script pen from Nuvo and a Pilot Envelope Addressing pen.

To protect the envelope, I buffed some Distress Micro Glaze over the envelope. This seals the painting and protects it from moisture.

I hope you love this month’s envelope! :)
