Envelope 80

I currently have a bit of a backlog of mail I haven't responded to...'s envelope 80, which I sent to Hester for her great envelope she sent to me spontaneously, after commenting regularly for a few months.  This is one of the 'antiques'. I have no idea what painting this is.

I thought the blue, tan and white of this stamp worked well with the envelope. If the stamp image had gone right to the edge like some stamps it would have worked even better. 

I used the black from the painting for the address color. The lines were right-justified - you can't appreciate it after redaction.

This one had an interesting 'liner' effect. The scanner didn't think so, and after repeated scans this is the best it would do.

And as always, the back.


  1. FinnBadger, it really was a beautiful surprise in my mailbox and a real keeper. Thank you again for sending it my way.

  2. You're welcome. I'm glad you liked it. I am behind in responses at the moment, but eventually I will send another one out. And keep an eye on the blog - you're part of my Fantastic French Mega Monday.
