The one with new art cards

18 May

Happy Saturday!

flowersThis is how I started my Saturday morning….greeted by beautiful flowers in the back yard! What inspiration first thing in the morning. And this week, I had been working on art cards with flowers as my focal point. Kinda perfect, huh? Anyhow,  I had so much fun making the last granola box canvas, that I had to make some more of those cute flowers.

This time, my canvas were magazine subscription cards. Yep, my art cards are back! So, I started here:

art card 1After a layer of gesso, I chose my color palet and applied the paint with my fingers. I always did enjoy finger painting as a child!

art card 2Sometimes when I’m creating, I forget to take photos so you’ll have to forgive me for not having close ups of the backgrounds without the beginnings of the flower heads. I used scrapbook papers for the flower heads; coordinating or contrasting papers, depending on my mood.

I think I enjoy these flowers so much because they are quick, easy, and never the same twice. And because I love using drawing inks which are for the stems and smaller details.

art card 6I used some Stampin Up! stamps to complete each card.

So there you are. Quick and sweet cards. Let me know what you think. I always enjoy reading your comments!

Til next week.
Cheers,

Michelle

    I love these! This kind of thing would make a great postcard.

      Yes! But since I’m sending to 4 girls in one house, they go in an envelope – that I decorate as well (which is fun!)
