new card design

I think for the final ones I'll crop closer to the bottom of the painting and paint the white shorts out more with my white acrylic, but not bad for the first try. Printed in reverse with archival ink on transparency then backed with gold and silver leaf before mounting on a signed card. you can see more for purchase on my art product blog
with more designs coming soon.
