Envelope Art Take Two ....

... 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.
