Dude, I am top slacker when it comes to posting projects to Craftster! Well, I'm making a resolution yet again to be better at it. So here is a collection of cards I've made over the past few months... I used rubber stamps for all of them, most of them (not the first 3) are of my own animal or monster illustrations. I like to use watercolors or colored pencils to color the stamped images!


Alice in Wonderland


Aw snap! Kid cowboy!


Amazon parrot. Squawk can mean so many things, so this card could be anything Smiley


Floating dog birthday. The original sketch of this dog is in my Sketchbook Project book from 2010 Cheesy


Sad monster...


Hugs...a friendly little beast.


Mr. Fancy Gentleman Fox... With a novelty yarn border.


Wolfie king, also with more novelty yarn!

Anyway, thanks for looking!

Absolutely awesome as usual, I only just (couple of months ago) dared to part with one of my cards you sent me (IYP), and even then it was to my best bud. Love them all.

 The only problem with these cards is that you would never want to write in them or send them away! They are so cool. I love your style!

I started scanning all my notecards, 4x6 art, ATC's etc. I put them on a jump drive and when I want them, my local printer will print them on anything...I had her do a sheet for me to put in front of a notebook so that I could have them and still send them out! Cheesy

Of course, you lose the textures and the feel, but it is better than not having them at all!

Wow, those are amazing! Very professional looking. Looks like something that could be sold in Paperchase... how long did each of them take? I've been doing my own greeting cards for a while now but it's mostly designs I do on Photoshop, so nowhere near as much effort as you've put in! Your characters are very original too, you should get an animator to make a cartoon out of it! I'm hoping to get quite a few cards sent out for Christmas, like in bulks of 100-150. Do you by any chance know of somewhere that would do this? I've been recommended this place for Greeting Card Printing but just wanted to get another opinion.

Again, well done on the cards!  Smiley
