SSCB#7


Envelope Art!

This is the back of the envelope. I colored this with my 
watercolor pencils and water pen.


 For this challenge we were asked to decorate the outside of an envelope, but it still need to me mailable. I often stamp the outside of an envelope,but found it a bit hard to do one for a DT project. I wanted it to look as thought I put in some effort and yet needed it to be mailable. I knew I was going to go patriotic. I kept it simple with just a bit of layering and paper piecing, on the porch flag. I just love that stamp.
Please stop by and see the rest of the DT projects.
