Count on Me

One of the many envelopes I was painting and stamping onto.
First I stamped an ornament with white gesso. When that was dry I painted over it with shades of yellow and blue.
When that was dry I stamped some numbers, the face, hand-carved leaves, script and swirls.
Now all I have to do is write the address on it and put it in the mail.
I am sure the postmen/women of the world enjoy a bit of color once in awhile instead of always white and business style......don´t you?
Over at The Three Muses you can see lots more artsy envelopes.
