... Morning!!! I've got another envelope for the current Serendipity Stamps Challenge - SSCB#7 to decorate a mail-able envelope. As I explained yesterday, I don't actually have an Serendipity stamps, but I think using the butterfly die is okay!!
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Spring Baskets
Inks: Stampin' Up! - So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Regal Rose
Die: Serenpidity - Floral Butterfly
Accessories: A2 White Lustre Envelope
This one is really just a variation on yesterday's envelope, but I think it works better. I used the same technique as yesterday, but this time I decided to make the butterfly multicoloured. I started off by sponging on yellow, then coral and finished with some darker pink at the wing tips. I also decided that the butterfly would be better positioned in the top left corner, leaving space beneath to write the address. I used the same sentiment above the butterfly - it was sunny yesterday afternoon, so I'm hopeful that spring will arrive eventually!
Don't forget the challenge is open until midnight US EST on 17th March - so there's
still time to join in. Oh yes, there's a prize too of $20 towards some
Serendipity stamps - here's hoping!!
I'm off to have my hair cut this morning - as it's very short I have to get it done every six weeks, otherwise I end up looking really messy!! That's all for now - hope to get back with a card later today.
