Altered Envelopes

Whenever I have time, I like to do a bit of outside decorating on the envelopes that the swaps travel in.
Mostly very easy stuff, a stencil and spray, using both original stencil side, then flipping it to use the overspray side as well. A quick stamp in the corner. This one I went back in with copic pens to color. The stamp didn't look great because the envelope had a texture. But, it colored up nicely. 
Some embossing and bits of paper, whimsical, not fussy. Make sure paper add ons are securely glued down. You don't want to have anything flapping that can catch on the mail machines.  The pens are a specialty pen for writing on black paper.
