IF - wise


What luck I had this week with 'wise' being chosen for the word to illustrate this week over on Illustration Friday. I had just finished this greeting card with a wise owl on it. I'm working on a series of cards that I hope to one day market to some card publishers and if I'm lucky again, one of them will pick up the series. They are going to be nature based, with lots of woodland creatures and of course leaves and trees. I'm using eco-friendly colors with the hopes that they will be printed with green inks and recycled paper. This is the 1st one in the series, with one other one done to share at a later date. I'd love to get some feedback on this - Am I on to something here?

Yes! You are on to something but don't say it to loud or big brother will take your idea. :) I would absolutely support someone who produced "green" cards. And of course this card looks familiar.... like the owl in the sushi set and the branch that was part of last years fall release. You are so talented - LOVE you images!
