Shimmering light on water, turquoisey blues, nature reflected - a printed card from original cyanotype design of a tree lined mere with the intricate shapes of Vetch, Cow Parsley and Ferns in the foreground. A really lovely card which could be used for many occasions ie. birthday, thank you, sympathy, christening, get well, anniversary etc... It's blank inside for your own message.

To create the original I used the old photographic process of cyanotype - a light sensitive solution is applied to watercolour paper, a large format negative placed on with actual Vetch, Cow Parsley and Ferns then exposed to sunlight, the solution is then rinsed off and the paper dried, fixing the image.

Nature is at the heart of my work. The 300gsm card is FSC accredited, supplied with a ribbed brown 100% recycled envelope in an eco-friendly clear wrap (made from corn starch these are fully biodegradable and compostable). Card measures 10.5 x 15cm.
