christmas postcards

Finally finished my Christmas postcards for nikkishell's swap
...(just a smidge late)

This is the design I ended up working with...it took me a while to draw one I liked...


I think I am at viewing saturation right now and am disappointed with my final photos (shiny card and glitter is a photography challenge).

I also think I may be cultivating a healthy glitter addiction (maybe it is just the passing Christmas viral variety - I am sure a new baby will cure that one!)

Well here they are! I tried a variety of colours...I think they all still look christmassy (sp?) (closer look over here)

(again I apologise for the photos - if you receive one, see if you can do a bit better for me - they are much better when seen for real...I think!)

I find the gocco process a bit spontaneous. So I end up doing heaps of prints and just going with whatever comes out. I always have lots left over...

Stay tuned as I can feel a "FreePost"-christmas in the wings!
