I love to collect vintage cards, tags and other paper goods that I find at flea markets, tag sales and antique stores. I tend to buy the inexpensive ones and often look through them to get inspired. For the May issue of Living I was asked to develop a project that was inspired by a specific pallette. I went directly to my collection and found two cards that really got me thinking for different reasons. One had a color combination that I found quite surprising and beautiful. I chose that for the pallette and then chose another for the illustration and painted quality. Mother's Day is in May so I thought it would be a good idea to make some cards. The end result was a set of 3 floral cards that are black and white line art painted with watercolor. The clip art for the cards is available in both color and black and white. So you can watercolor your own inspired palette or you can use ours.
