I was getting ready to send a birthday card to my friend Stan and I really wanted to try something different for the addressing. I know Stan usually will save the envelopes I address, so I thought, maybe if I use a tag on the envelope he could have just something nice with his name on it, rather than yet another envelope. I just grabbed some gouache and applied it to the tag with a paper towel. Yes, that's right, I use very intricate techniques : ) I mounted the tag on the envelope then did the address on one line in gold with a pointed pen mimicking the style I used to do his name, which was done with a brush. Now we'll see if a tag with fibers attached will make it through the U.S. mail...I hope so or Stan will be receiving an e-card from me!
