My projects feature several of the new releases for May.
First up is this one of two envelopes I created for a postal swap I'm participating in. I used Starfish S629 for the front and back and Keep Calm SDX053 on the flap to make my envelope look fresh from the ocean. I colored the Starfish stamp using Art Anthology Colorations as if they were watercolors. I just dotted a little on my craft sheet using the sprayer and then applied the color with a small brush. I stamped the sentiment, Keep Calm, using Versifine black ink (my favorite black ink).
I went in a little different direction with my second envelope (the swap was for two). On the front, I stamped Dragonfly SD626 and Wings of Possibility SD307 using Memento black ink. I then colored the dragonfly with Art Anthology Dimensional Gems. Next I swirled on dots of Rhodolite Dimensional Gems using a paintbrush.
On the back, I painted with a wash of Art Anthology Grass Colorations (& ran the brush down the front sides of the envelope) and then flicked on Raider Colorations mixed with water using a paintbrush. I stamped Deco Winged Cerub SD305 using Memento black ink and then colored in cupid's wings using Dimensional Gems. Lastly I stamped Sentimental Sayings PS005 using Versifine black ink.
