Cards, Cards & More Cards

This week I'm trying to return to my normal routine after my whirlwind trip out west and I'm also busy painting again, making new items for my ETSY shops and my website. I've been on an egg painting spree already this week, brought on by a custom egg order that I have at the moment......but I'll show egg art in another post, on another day. For now I've been making card sets from vintage ceiling tin paintings and canvas pieces as well. I especially love the 3-D effect that the cards made from ceiling tin paintings have, I love the way the detail of the tin shows up on the cards.














I'm slowing adding these card sets to my ETSY shop... http://www.artfulcreations.etsy.com/ and they will be coming soon to my website. Until next time.......

Hi Ruth, Your new cards are lovely. I can imagine the tin texture would make for an interesting look. I love to do cards and like to include one with purchases for a thank you gift.
Have you rested up from your great trip.
See you again soon.
Have a nice evening.

Hi Ruth,
I love your new cards as well as all of your art. I am delighted to hear that you found me through our mutual Friend, Kathryn Bechen. I am still feeling my way around Blog Land and have some kinks to work out. I am getting up my nerve to publish my 2nd post.
With your permission, I would love to add your blog to my blog under inspirational blogs. I look forward to getting to know you and enjoying your beautiful art. Erin Hougthon
