Vista Print thumbprint image
Yay! Cards came back from Vista Print and they're great! Thumbprint doesn't do them justice. I can scan one in, but basically it looks like the woodcut.
"Christmas Snack" for Schuyler House 2014
I ordered 100 blank cards for my growing collection. One of these days I'll remember to offer them on etsy in time for folks to buy them for xmas. I have 4 different cards available now. ;- j
I'm really pleased with this approach. I carved a black and white image ~ my wheelhouse ~ and then added pastels afterwards. Works best with a print that isn't saturated. A lighter print than I'd be happy with. Worked great for the xmas cards 'cuz I could saturate the colors on the scan before I submitted it. Worked great.
I'll have to see if I can add pastels to a darker print now that it's had time to dry thoroughly. I'm liking the pastel approach. 8-]
