Proving that the success of the painted hellebore wasn't a one-off, I painted a peony for my mum.
I wanted a change from the usual Copic-coloured Power Poppy images for this Mother's Day, so I got out the acrylic gouache and gold leaf instead.
Bride and groom hearts
I've only needed to make a handful of wedding cards over the years and so I don't have many suitable images in my stash, but I do have plenty of card and glitter.

I rarely make minimalist "clean and simple" cards, but sometimes circumstances leave me with no alternative.

Christmas star v2
In the spirit of cutting down on waste, I used the leftover cut-out pieces from the last set of cards to make some more.
