Taking a little break

It has been so very hot this summer and I have been rather busy trying to keep up with work for my little shops and also commissions for publishers, as well as finishing the attic studio renovations.

I am however working to bring some lovely new things to my shops this year.

So check back later and hopefully a few surprises will be here for you!

We do have some lovely Easter cards in store so enjoy browsing here in our Mulberry Muse store.

Bunny rabbit tea time Easter card and photoshop techniques

Bunny dear my dearLord Peter and Lady Beatrice Bunny taking tea in the garden.

A little fun greeting card I designed for Easter, a little late I know…

but a vintage Easter bunny postcard inspired this picture.

This is the little bunny featured in my picture, Lord Peter bunny.

Bunny monicle

and this is the original bunny postcard he was created from

VINT_EASTER_61

Using photoshop I spent hours happily removing the old background and reworking

the bunny image into my little Lord Peter.

Lady Beatrice had a similar makeover and a new bonnet for Easter.

Lord Peter needed work on his eyes to give them character, the addition of a monocle

was an irresistible extra for cuteness. With his spiffy bow tie and teacup he looks adorable.

I also designed the wallpaper border using a water colour repeat pattern that I had painted.

This is an example of how I blend together old images and new artwork.
I have posted this as I wanted to share a little insight into the amount of work that goes into

each and every card design I create for Mulberry Muse:)

You can buy the card,  gift tags and stickers here at Mulberry Muse
