CCB "Good for the Soul-Think Pink-Challenge"/Altered Letter Envelope

Altered Letter Envelope

“Think Pink” - Breastcancer awerness month so you need to create monocramatic pink

*Use any technique/material you want but it must be 75% CCB products.

Here is the art inspiration of a monocramatic pink color tones!

We are in October (Fall) season and support for the "Think Pink" - Breast Cancer Awareness Month....we are sharing our support in CCB of the Good for the Creative Soul Challenge for 2018, I would love to share with you all my "monocramatic pink" project.....I created an "Altered Letter Envelope" I hope you all enjoy and are inspired by my project. As I created this envelope I couldn't stop thinking of my grandmother who lost her battle when I was just a young child...and many others family and friends who have fought the fight and won and lost. I love them all and pray for a cure of cancer. I know creative ART can heals the broken spirit and heart with beauty and can bring a smile upon their faces as it as done for me...

I started with a plain letter envelope 5x7 size tore it apart and used it as my pattern template. I traced the envelope pattern onto a Canvas Corp Pink & Ivory Dot Reverse paper, cut it out and adhered back together in envelope form. Next I used TCW Light n Fluffy modeling Paste and stencils to create the raised patterns on top of the envelope, allow to dry. Stamped randomly over the front of the envelope in black ink, heat set the ink with a heating tool.

Gathered a few of my favorite Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in pink tones. Using a round paint brush I dipped in the glimmer mist and patted in a few places over the envelope. Sprayed with a little water and let the glimmer mist run over and around the raised modeling paste patterns. You can add more or take away with a paper towel or wet wipe. Dry with heat tool. While I had the Tattered Angels glimmer mist colors out I painted a few other items like the burlap flower, ivy tissuestock pieces, cheese well as the 2 x 2 stretched natural canvas. Dry with a heat tool and set aside to dry completely.

Lastly I love to embellish I gathered up a few pink color tones products to use and started to build my altered letter envelope. Inside the envelope I created a shabby chic card using the 7Gypsies Gypsy Moments 4 x 6 Printed File Folders as my card base. Added the adorable 2 x 2 Stretched Natural Canvas tucked in. The show stopper is the fabulous Canvas Corp Burlap Flower painted and adorned with my handmade fabric flower, Canvas Corp Tissuestock die cut floral petals and 7Gypsies Architextures Angel Wings tucked in and around the burlap flower. Finishing touches are sequins, buttons, enamel dots. To help give depth to the envelope I used Ranger's Distress Ink in Black Soot sponged around the edges of the envelope. Now it's ready to give as a gift to someone special.
