I'm happy to be back with a new creation from Andy's latest release at Creative Expressions as well as some stamps from his last release.
This plain manila envelope (6 1/2" x 3 1/2") is transformed into what I titled "Hope Rising". Intended to be a positive message of a warrior ange, in all of his majestic glory, rising from the evils of the city below elevating into the beautiful and hopeful heavens above.
This new collection of Andy's stamps at Creative Expressions gave me the inspiration for this envelope. I love how they seem to have been made for each other. The back side of the envelope is also finished to compliment the front. You will see those new stamps later in this tutorial. I love them together as well!

11. I stamped HOPE from Andy's First Class stamp, onto a piece of white tissue paper just as I had done with the angel. Using the same technique, I glued it in place above the angel and highlighted areas of the design with a water brush and Gold Metallic Acrylic Paint. Using a stiffer paint brush, add Lava Paste over random areas of the clouds to puff them up and add even more texture and depth to them. Heat set to make them puff up.
