Three Muses - Envelope Art

Here's my envelope, ready and waiting for an address and postage. I have become absolutely addicted to making these things! This background was a freebie which I attributed to PWB long enough ago I've forgotten what the initials stand for. (If you can correct me, please do!)
I added a little help from DaVinci, and a couple of stamps I made (the 50 cent one is actually my beautiful daughter), with a postmark by Katie Pertiet. The rose-in-hand is a Flickr collage image. I can hardly wait to see the work of everyone else!

  16. What a wonderful art envelope you have made! These things are really fantastic and a great joy to make. We used to make art envelopes with my friends as we were teenagers, and I'm so glad that I have saved many of them, they are real treasures.
