Just for you

 solo para ti
I finished this envelope today and I wanted to share it with you. Loving the result! I printed directly on the paper envelope, a very fun technique...
I started by opening a PS file of the size of the envelope, I stamped a scroll (a PS brush) in gray and added some touches of a distressing brush and the sentiment on the bottom, when I was happy with the design I printed it out. Then I colored the roses and leaves with colored pencils and added stickles to some of the flurishes.
I took this beautiful bird image (from The Graphics Fairy) and printed it two of them, one the mirror image of the other, cut ehtm out and placed them with foam tape.
I cut with edge scissors the clousure of the envelope and made a flower with scraps of ribbon, glued it in place and voilà! you have a nice, easy, and fast decorated envelope.
 Thank you for stopping by today!
