Thank You Cards

I caught the painting bug recently, and decided to express this new surge in creativity by painting some cards. At first, staring at the blank surfaces, I felt lost and didn't know what to draw. But then I just started drawing, free of self-judgement, and I'm happy with how they turned out!

I was inspired by Katie Daisy's amazing artwork, go admire her work here!

I'm not finished with the one on the right. I bought these blank cards and envelopes at Joann.

Perhaps I should start selling hand-painted cards in my Etsy shop? It did take me a while to paint these though, so I'm not sure if selling these would be worth the time required, and I'm not sure how much people would be willing to pay for these cards.

    They are so beautiful! I'm majorly impressed. Will probably be hard to part with them huh!

    1. Thank you! It will be hard to part with them, and I may never!

      I do that with stationery sets that I buy too, they just sit around in my room because they're too pretty to use!

  2. These are really breathtaking! I really like the one on the left. I'm sure you're aware these may be higher priced than normal cards but have you considered printing them from linoleum and them maybe hand paint some details? I think you would get a very similar effect and it should save you time!

  4. I agree with the making prints! I used to love making greeting cards but never sold them on Etsy because it looks like they're very hard to make it worth the time and money... but those painted ones might have better luck! I got the painting bug recently for watercolors and bought a little set and paper but haven't used them yet.
