Two Turtle Doves

After doing my partridge wrapping paper I decided to continue the theme and make some greetings cards. Below is my Two Turtle Doves greeting card. Ive pictured the process I went through to get to the end result. Printing can be so frustrating sometimes - for instance my paint decided not to fix properly so I had to experiment with differnt types to find one that worked well. Anyway it is available to buy through my folksy or Etsy store if its takes your fancy.

As you can see I sketch with whatever I can find and managed to sneak this in when the children were drawing too.

I like to paint on my design before cutting. I'm not sure if this technique adds anything to the process but I like doing it.

The finished print.
