I’m doing some cards for a friend of mine who recently rescued a beautiful Golden Retriever from Homeward Pets. Here is the first of three designs. I started with photos that I took of flowers and then with some pictures of Kayla. I printed the images out on vellum to give them a softer look. I played around with collaging the paper images on a painted background and then scanned them. I think the cards have a sweet, vibrant look that matches Kayla herself.


This lovely lady was transferred using an inkjet printed transparency that was rubbed onto a painted scrap of wood with a bone folder. I love how she came out looking like a delicate pencil sketch.
