GPP Street Team Crusade #10-Spread the Luv!


This was my first attempt at the spray-paint-stencil thing and I can't tell whether it was fun or I'm just stoned from the fumes. No seriously it was fun. I played around with different things as stencils -- the punched edge of a discarded calendar page, the stripes were made by putting a refrigerator shelf on the envelope, and the paisley effect was done by using the stencil three times, first in gold, then in black, then with white enamel. I kind of like the beveled effect it has.

It's a 6 x 9" envelope and the recipient is to be surprised!

Thanks Michelle for the challenge, and kudos for keeping up with all these comments!
