Take a look at my watercolor envelopes:

I used Altenew’s brand new Envelope Art Stamp Set alongside the Artist Watercolor 24 Pan Set to create these beautiful colorful envelopes.

Watercoloing is so freeing and it takes your mind off of these trying times we are facing. With all of this social distancing receiving a beautiful envelope doesn’t seem so bad. Today is my mother’s birthday so one of these beautiful is headed her way.

Here’s how I created these envelopes:

I gathered all of the supplies needed for watercoloring.

Then I just wet the paper with water and just freely painted strips and circles. I love seeing how the colors blend together creating other colors.

I love working with the warmer colors: reds, yellows, oranges. Sometimes I add purple and blues to see what happens.

Once the watercolor dries, its time to create the envelope.

I used We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board to create theses envelopes.

Glue the bottom and stamp to your heart’s desire. I used Altenew Obsidian pigment ink.

Your envelopes are ready to go!

  9. Oh I think you are brilliant Kymona! I love the fact you created watercoloured envelopes that will definitely stand out & make a statement in each postal persons hands they get processed through. I know, because I retired from Canada Post a few years ago & we used to comment on the unique envelopes we’d see. So, they will bring a smile to more than the people they are sent to.

  10. Wow! I love these! Funny, I’m also creating an envelope with the same punchboard as I’m looking at your post! And, you have given me LOTS of terrific ideas to decorate it! Thank you!

  11. Wonderful idea for envelope decoration. I didn’t think to do something like this wondering if watercolor paper is too thick to fold for the envelopes.

  12. Love your wild envelope art. Those envelopes would be the first ones I would open upon bringing in the mail. Smiles all around…..

  13. I was scrolling down looking for cards but saw envelopes instead. What a great idea, j love them! The most I ever did was to stamp an image on the envelope or use patterned paper to make it but these are so pretty, you can bet I will use this technique on envelopes in future.

  14. Kymona! i love the brilliant idea of the water coloring the envelopes. and waht fun patterns have you created..I am sure when they shall hop from one mail man to the other, theyd be curious to know whats inside.. and recipient would jump up with joy and bring a smile to them.. XOXO

  15. Kymona!! what a brilliant way to create the lovely water colored envelopes.. All the mail men who shall carry it would be just curious to know whats inside and the recipient would definitely jump with joy to see the envelope and will bring smiles.. XOXO

  16. These water coloured envelopes are amazing! I love all the different patterns you created. Bring and cheerful as well. And yes!! I want to try and make these.
