Postcard With LOVE


So here is the project I have been working on so hard. It is my husband's Valentines Day gift. It is VERY large as you can see so it took about three weeks for me to complete. I used paper, dye ink and paint. Lots and lots of cutting letters...yikes!



Maddie thinks it's groovy...she is such a cutie!

When I looked at the first photo, I thought it was a regular size postcard sitting in front of a jewerly case on a dresser. Then I saw the cat. Woah. Well done.

Wow! I can't believe it - you cut all those words out of paper?! ah, the things we do for love (of art and our men!) You are either crazy or a genius! I'm going with genius. :)

Beautifully done! I can't even imagine how much patience you need to have to seat and cut all of these letters. Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours

It is so awesome! What a special way to show your hubby how much you care. I love the pics of your studio. Do you use an exacto for all of your work, or just certain pieces? I always forget to use one, usually use tiny scissors. Just curious. Hope you have had a lovely weekend.
