For the Enchanted forest & Woodland creature swap I was paired up with the lovely Stellou. She listed mushrooms as one of her favourites, so the inner geek in me had to do this postcard. Its made with watercolour pencils, permanent marker for the text, some white gouache for the dots and tinted with tea.


Aaaand a cardboard cover so it wouldn't get smashed during shipping:


And if you haven't seen the swap gallery, go check it out. There's some seriously amazing stuff in there!
