|Peaks and valleys|
|Blue me away|
These are my first 100 % recycled cards.
I used a base of recycled, handmade paper as the background. I wanted my cards to be rough around the edges, so I didn't cut the paper. Instead I tore the paper into rectangular pieces.
For the Peaks and valleys card I cut an old newspaper into stripes. I coloured the stripes with Indian ink and watercolours. I made the houses out of newspaper. The foundation of the houses is newspaper-white with a touch of white watercolour. The ceilings are coloured brown/orange with Indian ink.
For the Blue me away card I made the sky out of handmade paper, which I painted with blue watercolour. The dandelion with seeds was found in a newspaper. I wanted to intensify the original colours in the dandelion, so I filled it with white, yellow, green and blue watercolours. I also gave the seeds a little touch of colour.
