Tilda and Co Challenge

For this week's challenge at the Tilda & Co Challenge blog it is...

Envelope Art

We would love to see what you can come up with the use of Envelopes,
Now you
could simply Decorate a Envelope so it matches a card which will make that
handmade card that little bit more special,
Or you could use the Envelopes
to make art!
The choice is yours, Stretch your mind and look at the
different things you could do with Envelopes!

Here is mine. I took a square blank envelope and stamped out the Edwin, stairs and owl. I then made masks of them all and masked them while using a Stampin Up wheel with distress ink to make the borders. I then coloured in the images with promarkers. I left the middle area blank to write the address.

Stamps: Magnolia

Border: Stampin Up Wheel - Autumn Dots

One lucky winner will win a stitchels house and a brand new copy of Simply cards and papercrafts.

You can find all the details here

What a gorgeous envelope, you would have to hand deliver it, rather than trust the PO with it.
