My lovely illustrated envelope has made it to America to the lovely Alik Arzoumanian. I love sending pretty envelopes and it is always nice to see the post office ladies faces when they see the colourful designs they need to ship off to different countries. I'd love to swap more patterened snail mail, if anyone is interested please email me! Emma.Hawman@hotmail.co.uk =)
I used a white crayon to draw the outlines of the butterflies then used watercolours over the top so the white stood out bright against the blue background. The details were drawn in with fineliners and coloured markers. I loved the motifs so much I've drawn them out fully ready to put them into a pattern or placement print for greetings cards and other products.
