MailArt Monday: Pigtales Grew Wings

When I was cleaning my art room over my Christmas break, I found a stack of white standard C6 envelopes and I thought it would be fun to show you some more arted up envelopes in my weekly MailART Monday posts. butterfly mailart

I created the envie above with some of my fave Stampotique stamps and a new stencil by Brett Weldele. A colorful burst in cold winter times :) The whole thing is one layer and done with masking the main image and a part for the address off with some sticker paper.

You can see most of the materials I used here. The Dylusions mixed media palette has such lovely bright colors! I chose some according distress inks to layer over the stencil, which is "scribbles" from Brett Weldele. When I took the stencil away I stamped some texture on it with the fun Textures cube from Kate Crane. And added more color first with distress inks and blender tool.

Before I took the mask away I also sprayed some shimmer, Perfect pearl kiwi to be exact. Then I colored little miss Pigtales and the lovely wings design by Daniel Torrente in with alcohol makers. I was contemplating leaving the wings like that, but I wanted brighter colors, so I went over it again with promarkers and copics (alcohol based markers) to brighten things up.

She definitely looks a lot brighter here and to make her pop out even more I used a white gel pen (from pentel) for some accents. 

It's the second week of the Anything Goes challenge at Stampotique, which I am entering this envelope in. You can play along until Wednesday when the new challenge theme is announced :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
