The very lovely Valerie is our host this week at Stampotique and she is challenging us all to make something with an envelope, a great challenge!! I decided to stay true to the envelope and I love all things with wings so immediately thought of air mail and what better way to send a hug?
I made the envelope using an ATC envelope template, and left it plain white. The wings are butterfly wings using Large Butterfly. For a bit more pinkness, I love pink, I added the hearts from Heart Flowers. I love the sentiment Hug Enclosed!, it's a stamp I go back to time and time again. The envelope and wings are finished in beeswax and a heart stamped in to the wax and the whole piece distressed by scratching into the wax and applying oil paint and buffing off the excess. The beeswax gives a lovely creamy colour too.
I look forward to seeing your creations and don't forget just for joining in you are in with a chance to win $30 Stampotique Gift Voucher!
Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx
