I have to admit I can’t remember what this was for.  Someone at work, either a birthday or a farewell.  I found the scan in my folder when I was cleaning out emails.

The Sun
Le Soleil

The stamp is one of my favourites, it is like a Renaissance depiction of the sun in the heavens.  There is a similar version of La Luna but that never grabbed me as much.  I liked the warm tones – reds, coppers, golds – because they capture the heat and colour of the sun.

The marbled papers are hand made by women in Bangladesh, and are sold through a fair trade program.  I think the craft shop I got them from doesn’t exist any more, which is a shame, but I have a stash of them that I like to use on special occasions.  On this card I used both a cream and gold piece and a burgandy one.

I make arty mixed-media things, & write fantastical things (with kissing), & do musical & dancing things, & play gaming things, & do weightlifting things, & organise fabulous event things. But mostly I wrangle cats. Renaissance woman.

  1. Actually I think I remember what it was for! One of the student casuals finished her degree and graduated – this was a ‘Congratulations’ card that the whole team signed.

    Right, feeling better about it now.
