1. Cut off the base of celery stems. Save the rest for cooking or Bloody Mary's.

2. Compile materials including acrylic paint, Paper Source envelopes and foldover cards, celery roots, and extra blotting paper.

3. Mix paints.  I mixed a pink and a red. Dip celery root in paint and dab a few times on the blotting paper to remove excess ink until desired stamp intensity is reached.

4. Using one color at a time, stamp each envelope. Let stamp dry in between colors.

5. Continue stamping using both colors to create a pattern.
