Air Mail

Hi all! There's a fun challenge over on the Penny Black Blog today to decorate envelopes! I haven't done this in a long time....I need to do it more though, it's fun! Here's what I came up with using Penny Black's new Air Mail transparent set...


I stamped and sponged the greenery with Certainly Celery ink and sponged the sky in Cool Caribbean. The sun is stamped in Apricot Appeal and the cat on the back flap is colored with Copics. Quick but fun! :)

Be sure to head over to the Penny Black Blog today to see all the gorgeous envelopes the girls on the DT have come up with. TONS of beautiful inspiration over there, let me tell ya! Since it's Monday, it's also time for our weekly video tutorial by Jill!

Have a good one!

What.....this is so awesome. I love this idea. Wish I had time to create something. I need to get out my PB stamps. They need love. Great job..

Beautifully done! I'm so afraid to decorate the outside envy too much for fear someone might swipe it before the card gets to its intended location. This is gorgeous!
