I have just recently finished my watercolor painting,
I love how the two are nestled in
amongst heavy snow ladened fir boughs.
There are no cardinals here in Olympia, where I live,
but when I lived back east in Rhode Island for a
time, I would occasionally see them and they were
a rare and beautiful sight to behold.
I have printed my painting onto heavy, feather-edged
cardstock cards, they are blank inside and also come
with matching feather edged envelopes.
I have softened up the edges a little bit and heavy ladened
those boughs with a generous amount of ultra fine crystal glitter
(which doesn't really show up on this picture very well).
This is not my usual smattering of a little here
and there for that frosty look :-) No, it's alot!!!
Thes cards and many more are all available at
my ETSY store.
