Words Tax Envelope

Here I am again, playing with the Paperartsy challenge of Words.
Decided to start with a very austere envelope which dates back to my Dad, probably from the 60's.
Glued it to my journal page and added splashes of frescos in Sky, Banana, Smoked Paprika, Bougainvillea and Limelight!

Obviously my mission was to lighten the mood of the envelope.
I dripped some ink from the top of the page and then stencilled with snowflake using a Lin Brown stencil,some flowers. Stencilled some leaves; scribbled around the flowers with Black Stabile Aquarelle and went over them with a watery brush; stamped a black Jofy border; stamped some leaves; played around with spots an dots and just played really!
The idea behind it is the contrast between the words and the happiness of the flowery bower!
so, it is being entered into the Paperartsy challenge.

Brightened an already quite pleasant day!
