Sunday Postcard Art


This week I was asked to be the host for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge. My theme is "botanica."
Bontanica covers things like flowers, fruit, shells, seahorses, starfish, butterflies, dragonflies, bees, insects, birds, eggs, nests, feathers, leaves, fish….
The design element is fairly simple, and the feature image is usually placed on old music, dictionary pages, text, postcards, ledgers, blueprints, architectural renderings/sketches, etc.
Next, the piece is typically finished with things like postage stamps, postage cancellation marks, numbers, symbols, text, etc, etc.
Here's my sample:
