How to Make a Scene: Envelope Art

Do you decorate your envelopes? I’ve done some stamping on them, but today I’m sharing an entire scene I made on a Basis White Envelope. This month’s special is Basis Cardstock, so you could create your own envelope art and scene before it’s assembled.

  1. Each image is stamped individually onto the Basis White Envelope. Be sure to leave space for the address and stamps. Put a piece of scrap paper in the envelope to keep it from bleeding through.
  2. Color on the stamp with a water-based marker and stamp onto the envelope. I used Karin Brush Markers Pro for the stamped images.

3. Use the blender pen to pull the color into the image to color it in. This isn’t watercolor paper, so I don’t suggest using a water brush pen or paintbrush.

4. To color the background a little, scribble the marker onto a slick surface. Pick up color with blender pen and color on the envelope.

5. Use a watercolor marker to add the name. I used Tombow Dual Brush Markers for this. I used the bullet tip because my hands were too shaky for the Karin Markers.

6. Add accents with a white gel pen.

7. Use a sealant of some kind before adding stamps to prevent the color from bleeding.

I was pleased that the marker worked so well. This type of coloring is not perfect, but it’s an envelope. It will probably get thrown away, so I didn’t spend too much time, but it was so much fun to make! Have you created envelope art scenes?
