I'm Dreaming of a Monochrome Christmas
After my christmas cards last year I thought I'd stick with the black and white theme. To start I got this high-gloss acrylic craft paint that had a really nice wet looking shine to it when it dried. I had to really glob it on, which was a lot of fun. Then to finish it off I added a wash of watercolors on top. Luckily the acrylic didn't bleed and the watercolors were able to flow nicely on top of the lettering.
To finish these off I did the reverse on the envelopes - with a few little messages here and there to fill that pesky blank space :)
I wrote some highly personalized notes on the back but I think the front pretty much said it all; and anyway...
