Stamp on your Envelope

It's time for our monthly Designer's Choice Challenge over on The House That Stamps Built. This month it was Patti's turn to pick and she chose: "Stamp on your Envelope" as our theme for this week.

I created an address box on my envelope using a mask and the RI peppermint stamp to match the candy stripes on my card. After stamping (and painting in the stripes with distress oxide) I added a layer of iridescent embossing powder to make them sparkle!

  • Versamark Watermark Ink
  • White Embossing Powder
