I remember as a kid watching Batman on an old black and white television in our kitchen after I came home from school. It was Batman, followed by the Jetsons. Good times. :)
When I saw the new Just Batty stencil from CZ Design in the new STAMPtember release from Simon Says Stamp, I knew exactly what I wanted to do! I’ve been saving the Batman postage stamps that came out a few years ago for just such an occasion! See the entire STAMPtember release HERE!

I created this envelope out of Bristol paper with the 1-2-3 Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers (see why I prefer this punch board over the Envelope Punch Board).
After masking off the flaps of the envelope, I ink blended using Wilted Violet and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks for the main area of the envelope. The purple shade was a perfect match for the purple on the Batman postage stamp!
I moved the masking tape and worked on the flap next. I wanted yellow bats with a black background, so I first used the Just Batty stencil and ink blended Mustard Seed over it for the yellow bats. Then I applied clear embossing powder and heat set it. With the yellow bats protected by the slick surface of the embossing, I then blended Black Soot over the top. The embossed areas resisted the ink.
Kriste’s address was added using black markers, with white markers for an outline.

To protect the envelope from moisture, I applied a thin layer of Distress Micro Glaze and buffed off the excess.
