Love Envelopes....



Hello and Happy Thursday!  

Tina here again today and I am excited to be able to share another project with y’all.  Today, I would like to share Love envelopes, using 'Bird Head', 'Steampunk Owl', 'Face Collage' and 'Color Wheel Lines'.


To create my envelopes, I started by heat embossing several stamp images to small tags.  I used a white/gold embossing powder so that it would act as a resist when applying paint.  Using several complimentary colors, I painted each tag and wiped off the paint from the stamped image (with a baby wipe).  



I then stamped a white coin envelope with 'Color Wheel Lines' stamp and colored in (randomly) the pattern.  I then stapled the stamped tag to the stamped envelope.




To finish my Love Envelopes, I dry embossed several larger envelopes, then attached a rhinestone brad, tag, stick-pin, and sentiment to each envelope. 

This is one of those ‘done in a minute’ projects,  that I just love.

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Tina
