Until last week, I hadn’t made any hand-drawn and hand-coloured original art notecards in awhile! But as happens in this varied-media artist’s life, I got the urge to sit down with my array of Sharpie markers, watercolour paper, and black cardstock to create some new cards. Every August I scour the back-to-school sales to see if there are any new colours of Sharpies, and I’m never disappointed. I love collecting the new colours (in multiple packs, I admit). I love how they feel on watercolour paper. I love drawing black outlines of flowers and then colouring them in. I love decorating the backgrounds. And I love how they all look against the black cardstock.
I’m considering whether or not to list them in my shop; I’ll let you know if I decide to do so. I want to improve my designs, though, I think. Anyway, what do you think of these designs?
Which card is your favourite one?
