So in light of "the process," I thought I would show how I come to the final art. Below, is my original watercolor for a custom photo card I designed for Christmas. After it was scanned and cleaned ( because I can be a total art pig ), I felt like it needed more, and the style in which I drew it had a very vintage feel. Knowing that "Vintage" anything is a trend right now, I looked through my purchase of "Lil Owls" backgrounds, and found the perfect vintage floral pattern to place over the art. It was just the perfect touch the art needed.
It went straight to my Greeting Card Universe store which made it available immediately. You can visit it there by clicking on the card below. Onto another card.... do you think kids still like to color? I think so, and had that in mind for my next Holiday card.
