|Vintages Graphic Flowers are collages made from vintage botanical illustrations, postcards, letters, stamps, and free hand drawings and water colors. I start with an idea, usually a strong graphic of a flower or an insect which I scan into Photoshop, there I manipulate the image, collage in other elements such as text, stamps, textures, until I come up with something that really captures my imagination. I “paint” on the images in Photoshop. Once the image has been printed I embellish it with hints of glitter. I have recently started using my own watercolor paintings as elements in the cards. They can be best described as being part of the Shabby Chic aesthetic.
These cards are 5.5 by 4.25, printed on 60lb paper, and hand detailed with glitter.
