Some designs that I worked on at the end of last year. They are all official cards now. I love making these, it’s so relaxing. I draw them in ink, scan them in and then color them on the computer. The coloring is the hardest part for me. I can never make up my mind and wind up with 20 versions before I end up with something I’m happy with. For some of these, I couldn’t decide for the life of me – hence the red and blue lantern versions.
Something else I also have difficulty with is the inside sayings of the cards. I decided to make the main theme of my cards – Dream more, Stress less. Messages include things like “Wishing you a stress-free day,” & “Hope your birthday is worry-free!” and other calming, hopeful sayings. See the inside messages of my Flourished Card Line. Some of them are available for sale in my shop – Cynla on Etsy. Have any stress-less sayings you’d like to see in my cards?
This one is my favorite. It’s Odawara castle which is near my aunt’s house in Japan and looking at it takes me back there. The inside of this one reads “Hope you’re in a happy place.”
