Have you seen, Jack in the Green?


Green Man

I am particularly pleased with this card. He was made using my original artwork for a piece of lace that I designed in 2004. This is his 4th incarnation. 1st was the lace followed by an embroidery done by a friend (who then kindly gave her work to me).

Then at Christmas I had the image of the lace printed onto a couple of mugs as Christmas gifts. And now here for this card.I had my artwork scanned into the computer so after slightly reducing him in size I printed him off 6 times onto a pale green perlescent paper. I then layered this up to create the effect that you can see in the finished piece.

You can find a further pic of this card in my flickr gallery along with some images of the lace as well.

    I remember you doing that first design for the lace! He looks great as a card too.
