2016 Valentines Card
I still do greeting cards! Are you surprised? Of coarse not– They’re too much fun.
Both of the Valentine’s Day cards up here are my absolute favorite. You can actually purchase a variety of fun stuff with these characters on it over on my RedBubble Page. I’ll admit, I have a walrus t-shirt… He’s just so cute, how could I resist?!
The “party animals” birthday card was another fun exercise using limited colors. From what I was told, the gal it was commissioned for absolutely adored it, which was wonderful to hear. I’ve reworked a version of the card for my own purposes that removed the “beautiful” text from the card to make it a little more user friendly.
Last card that needs explaining is my favorite neon yellow crocodile. If you ever miss someone and you know they think you’re kind of annoying from time to time? That’s the one you should send. 🙂
I’ll have more cards up for you in the near future, including the super fun Easter card I created this year. It was interactive, AND had stickers– how could you go wrong with that?
Easy answer: You can’t!
Now that all the Birthdays have come and gone, it’s finally time to put this little series up here! It was a wonderful challenge, coming up with four cards that interacted this year. There was originally going to be 5, but, well… I settled at four.
If you like what you see, I’ve got cut out variations of each of these creatures up on my RedBubble Shop as stickers, iPhone cases and a variety of other unique gifts.
Each piece was drawn using brush and India ink, then finished up and formatted using Adobe Photoshop. Additionally, each card had some fun hand done font inside wishing each family member the very best on their special day. With any luck, I’ll have these available as a 4 or 8 pack set of blank stationary as soon as I get my Store Envy shop up and running!
It’s been awhile since I’ve done much of anything with these guys, and now that I’ve opened an online shop-type-things (at RedBubble.com) I realized that some of these cuties would make awesome stickers and such. So… Here they are all colored and played with. I’m planning to continue working with a selection of the others with a similar intent in mind. This little project of mine has also rekindled my desire to continue working on my INKling sketches. Those will be making an appearance here in a short while!
