Just in Time for Valentine's Day





These Art Deco style cards were my first foray into card-making and they ended up being my favorite. Printed with my Japanese Gocco silkscreen press and then hand-painted with gouache. Many think me insane for hand-painting each card but I actually really enjoy monotonous yet creative work. Reminds me of the hours spent with all those coloring books.

Oh, and have I mentioned how much I love my Gocco? In fact, I dropped it down an entire flight of basement stairs where it landed and bounced twice on the cement floor. There was not even a chip in the plastic nor a crack in the glass. Fine Japanese workmanship. Wow.

These notecards can be purchased directly through my Etsy store just in time for you to send to your favorite chums.

Blank on inside.
Six per set.

Each card measures 4 x 6 and comes with matching envelope.
French Paper 100% Recycled Cardstock.

**Note: This is image is available in a wide variety of colors and sizes and can be mixed and matched in a set.

"monotonous yet creative work" describes some of my beading to a tee... I still can't work out why I enjoy it, but I do.
I love your card.
