I sometimes make cards, either collaged, or printed from my computer. I usually make them on watercolour paper that I buy packaged as pre-formed cards with matching envelopes. I find the texture of the paper lends a pleasing depth to the image and makes it look like an original piece of art. Recently I made this digital composition for a Mother's Day card.
It's composed of a photo of an orchid on display in a plant store overlaid with a sample from one of my Calabria Series paintings, then tweaked and twirled a bit more in Photoshop. I'm happy to say that my mother liked it well enough to put it in a frame.
I hope to eventually set up an online shop where I'll sell my cards and maybe other forms of my art work. Meanwhile, I have to save up for a better printer that I won't have to fight with to get it to print on heavier paper. Ah, the trials and tribulations of the digital age! Where we would be without them...not here reading each others' blogs at any rate.
