Early Valentine's cards


I participated in the Valentine artists trading card (ATC) exchange at Drawspace. I drew nine cards and will receive cards from others. It's fun drawing for others, and collecting other people's art. (Wish we could do this somehow with the cello--maybe a joint CD--wouldn't that be fun!)

The cards are small, only 2 and a half by 3 and a half inches, just big enough to experiment with. They are just about the same size as they look on my blog. Since it is not even February yet (though quite close to it), I am posting only a couple of my cards. These are all colored pencil and ink on Stonehenge drawing paper (thick, like posterboard).


(Yeah, I know, it should have been a bass clef, but we play in treble clef too.)

Thanks! and how did you make that little heart? I heart it.

I like them, too. Although I have to say that a treble clef is more appealing than bass or tenor.

One uses html special characters

These are great, makes me sad I decided not to do this set!

The heart notes are perfect!

Thanks! The only problem with these ATCs, is that they is all the artwork I do these days. On the other hand, I was talking to a professional artist the other day, and she said that ATCs are great, and she enjoys doing them too. So, I will probably sign up for the next one, too.
