Greetings Cards

Greetings Cards

The back-centre one may be drawn in Illustrator, but the rest are hand-crafted watercolour or crayon works!

The three large cream cards were for wedding couples – Left is styled after Scott C., front-centre is based on Quentin Blake. Right is all me. Bottom-right features weddings rings incorporated into a loveheart-stamped ball-and-chain.

I would call these cards “one-of-a-kind”, but as they were gifted for certain occasions, I no longer possess any of them… I had to make copies for this more formal shot!
