With Love.........

Today's project is decorating an envelope.......
My colour choice was inspired by Color Throwdown
I thought they where really pretty colours.

I used Concord & 9th Wildflower Stamp Set 
and New to me their Perfectly Penned Stamp set.
I was keen to see if I could link the alphabet together.
It went OK!

I will be entering the challenge.....
I stamped the flowers with white pigment ink
and painted the colours with watered down acrylic paints.
The flower stamp set is so pretty and I enjoyed using the new alphabet set.
The card to go in it is nearly finished!

I will be linking my card up to the following Challenges......
New Alphabet stamp set, stamping and colouring onto kraft with acrylics all new to me

Awesome idea! So much more fun (and beautiful!) than a plain old envelope. I love the coloring on kraft, too. Thanks so much for joining us at Where Creativity Meets C9!

You did a great job with the alphabet set, it definitely looks hand drawn. The lightly painted flowers are really nice! I want to try that technique with the watered down paint!
