This was actually the last envelope so far that I have created (I hope to decorate a couple more). I just had to use those cactus stamps in some way and have been really inspired by Geninne's Art Blog as she has so many fascinating artefact's and is great at drawing.
I of course decorated the envelope first, stuck the stamps on and the decided that the cactus closest to the stamps needed a little something more so drew those awful spiky bits on which I made a mess of. In the end I just decided to ignore it and decorate the postcard which I love.
Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of the back of the card which was a zig-zag border in green and black around the edges and a green seal. So you now have a photograph of the clothes I wore yesterday instead.
I knew straight away where I wanted to stick this envelope and yesterday I went with my niece to the park. It was a glorious day all day, the sun was shinning, the sky was clear that is until I arrived at the park and then it was suddenly so grey. I decided to go ahead and do my mission but when I went back to the car it started to rain and I had no time left to go back and reclaim this envelope as I had to get back with my niece for when her parents arrived.
I used the quote 'You're Beautiful' because though it is an ugly piece of art work and I don't get it, in its own way it has its beauty.... also cactus are considered ugly by some. I hope someone picked this little envelope up.
Do you like or own a cactus?
