"A Final Bow..."




...for the last 4 ladies in my China Bloom ATC series
Each has been taken...and has been given with "LOVE"
but
since they had not been formally revealed on my blog
I thought that a "group post" on a Blooming Tuesday would be
a perfect way to let them "take a final curtain call."
Personally, I am "over the moon" in delight with your enthusiasm
for this little card series.
They have truly been a lot of fun to make...
and...with that being said...
I have wonderful plans for designing MORE
China Bloom sets..."Ta DAAA"
...the next set will be revealed mid June
(fingers crossed...)

These are absolutely beautiful. The color of the background really sets up the mood for these pieces. Great choice!

I agree with Teri - how would one choose??? I love your cactus paintinss, your oriental blooms, your lace, everything!! That settles it, I am going to do some art cards just so I can come up with one worthy of swapping with you :)

You've sure mastered the mum!
I'm going to try to get several cards done at some point before the last of my things get packed up. It really is fun sending them out and getting gems like these in return ;)

Thanks so much for your kind words. I do love that flower book...I am hoping to find more like it in other subjects - birds, leaves and trees maybe.

Detail is a new concept with to me - I worked on both the Poppy and the Hibiscus for quite some time with the shading aspect of the drawing. Normally I just stick with simple lines. I really was happy with how they came out.

Simply gorgeous.

I love the Chinese (?) lettering! Adds to the composition...

Chris said...

Oh, these are so pretty!
of course...

Thank you so much for your mail art, and your gorgeous ATCs, which are so stunning in person, and I am going to display them in honor on my mantle! Want to make a special frame for them. I loved your envelope and card, too! Really great to find a polished and pretty package from someone I've been a fan of, and I have blogged about it. Thanks so much!

You're so amazingly talented.
