My Cards

Did you know that I am a card maker. Over the years, I've made hundreds of cards, and I have never sold them. I sent them to my friends, and some I have kept to myself. I started making cards sometime in the 1980s. The earlier style is such a simple, no-sparkle, and they are pretty dark. At a dark color, I wanted to describe the dark Nordic winters, short days and freezing temperatures.

I have used many different techniques, different colored boards glued on top. Two cards in the top, I'm blowed the paint, using a straw, and after a quick drawing of removing the paint.
The lowest card I have painted the moon and silhouettes of trees with white paint.

    Mukavaa kun kerroit tekniikoista, mutta en vieläkään ymmärrä miten noin hienoja kortteja tehdään! :)

  2. Sara, ei tarvita muuta kun istua pöydän ääreen kera suurien luulojen ja ison kasan tarvikkeita. Sitten vaan tekemään ja pettymään.- Yksinkertaista!
