I decided long ago that I would not put sentiments inside the cards I sell. The reason being that when I would purchase cards the words inside would determine whether I would purchase it, not the art work.
When I make cards I like to do layering with several pieces of different colored papers. Some I tear, some I trim. I put together combinations that I like. Some of my background papers on the following cards are from a demo I taught at the Samish Paint Out, on using the Gelli Plate for monoprinting. The rubber stamp images were from a used rubber sale I shopped at a few weeks ago. I used watercolors for coloring the images.
