You've got mail


This weeks challenge on 3 Muses is to decorate an envelope , leaving space for the address and sender.
I tore and I painted and I cut and I glued and tried something different and after take 4 I gave up and just went back to plain stamping.

Well, there's nothing wrong with "plain" stamping Ellen because the effect you have chosen is exquisite - so beautiful. I love your art envelope. If you decide to send it to a friend it will a lovely little piece of art for her (or him) to receive.

Beautiful stamping, Ellen! The black stamping against the blue background is very effective. It's a beautiful envelope. Thank you so much for joining us this week!

Ellen, stamping is not "just plain" - I think it takes a lot of skill and vision to make such a beautiful envelope as you have made!

Ellen, your envelope is gorgeous and all the more so since you had to tear and cut and paint and the rest before you chose your lovely stamps to complete this wonderful little work of art.

Plain? I don't think so. Send it to someone you love.
