What does one do with glossy envelopes?

Alcohol ink them, of course! I found this neat idea on a The Paper Source website last week, and decided it was the perfect way to use up some of the glossy A1 envelopes I have had for ages and never used.

I forgot to open the envelope so that the flap was being inked at the same time as the back; if you look closely, you can see there is a slight "line" on the backs of the envelopes where the "bump" created by the flap kept the ink from being applied evenly. If that does not make sense, don't worry, just be sure to open the envelope before inking!
