Spooky Altered envelope!

It's been a while since I last made an altered envelope and with the spooky season upon us I thought it would be fun to send some happy mail to my daughter away at University!

I started with a simple background using Distress Ink pads.Then I stamped the 'Abstract Foilage' stamp in the centre to form a rectangle for the address label again using Distress Ink and some white Gesso.. the 'Numeric' stamp and the 'Web' from Stampotique Originals were then stamped onto the envelope using Distress Inks for a muted look. The gorgeous Miguel Has A Gift brand NEW from Stampotique Originals was stamped straight onto the envelope using Jet Black Archival ink pad from Ranger. A little doodling with a black Sakura Pigma Micron Pen and my envelope is ready for sending!

I am linking my envelope with the Creative Blog over at A sprinkle of imagination today. There is lots going on with a sale on Tim Holtz stamps in the SHOP and the brand NEW monthly challenge see HERE for entry details and your chance to win a £10 gift voucher to spend instore!

Time for me to go AWOL for a little while.. I'm booked in to have a major operation on Wednesday this week, the nerves are well and truly kicking in now!!!! See you on the other side.. (when I am allowed!!!) Thank you for your love and support on my blog.

  Happy creating, Gez oxoxo
