Handmade Cards

Inside the Card

Using painted papers to decorate the inside of a card.
Painted cardstock is the body of the card.
I used tissue paper painted with gold paint and glued it
onto each side of the card,
The sunstamp on one side and the HAPPY DAY
word strip on the other side were glued
over the gold tissue.

Painted Portraits

Maggie and Me

So these started as an idea to have fun with our pictures.
Just face shots changed into black and white
with Photoshop and printed out on simple copy paper.

I used stamps and strips of paper with paint and
laid on layers of paint to create texture.
Wanted to create lots of color and movemtns on the surface of the
black and white photocopy.

Didn't start with a plan.... just playing with things on the
work table
