Artful Cards

I'm creating several new series of mixed media art cards. One line is plant-themed featuring flowers and weeds embroidered on stamped paper-fabric enhanced by additional fabric scraps and buttons. A second line collages oil cloth and vintage style schooling illustrations ("biografios") embellished with miniature clayware, jewelry charms, and everyday ephemera. A third line combines the elements of the second into a clear vinyl pouch along with higher profile kitchen miniatures and actual dried foodstuffs. A slit in the back holds a folded notecard ready to be personalized. The latter two lines are inspired in part by Mexican kitchens.
