A new run of blank greeting cards are featured on my etsy shoppe, www.dkoepp.etsy.com . The material is layers of Pelikan Plaka casien paint on Canson Mi-Teintes paper. Painted on both sides, cut down to reveal the jewels and ground for the calligraphy. I used Dr. Martins Bleed-Proof White, Higgins Eternal Black, Copper Acrylic and Bronze Acrylic. I learned this technique from Carol Pallesen’s class, Casual Caps and Colorful Cards. I’ve been making them since.
There is nothing better than sitting down to pen someone you care about a personal note. Receiving that note in a sea of bills and junk mail is a delight.
