From Kathy - layering

This is a great idea for a couple reasons. First, this is a large 9x12 envelope so it is a good way to break up all that space. The green panel is some nice art paper. Finding ways to use up the random scraps of paper is always nice.

Then the name is layered on top. If you stress over getting the name just right on an envelope, writing it on regular paper and layering is a way to get a perfect name for the envelope.

Who knows, if I dissected the layers, I might discover that there is some *mess* under the green panel and the whole thing was inspired by something that did not please the artist.

Yup - there was something else under than green panel. Not a mess - it is a recycled envelope.
Sometimes my intuition is spot on . Other times, not so much.

That $1 stamp in the center is one of my all time favorites. The way she tied the colors together is very nice - simple and effective. It's not rocket science folks.

Now, let's ponder the exuberance of the cancels. A bit over the top - or wild - but it's a nice organic counterpoint to the streamlined envelope.
