artistamps


artistamps 1, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

These are my first attempt at artistamps - they are approx 1.25 inches square. I made them for a swap, they will be be mounted onto art trading cards. A fun format to work with, the small size makes them quick and easy. And the bright colours are always my favourites - good old tria pens!

My Christmas Card for 2006


ANGEL, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

This is the Christmas Card design that I chose for 2006. In the past, I have done individual drawn cards, but this time I decided to do a more intricate design, and have it professionally printed. I then matted the prints and put them onto cardstock. I kept the original, and framed it as an addition to my holiday decorations.
