So next time you're 'surfing' the web, drop and in say hello to my shop MagicalMonoprinting (love it by clicking on 'favourite'). Here's the link if you need a bit of help getting there....... https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/MagicalMonoprinting.
But before you click the link and dive into a few hours of ETSY love....I wanted to tell you that I've become addicted to making cards. Not the scrapbooking, all bling and wow factor type of card. My cards are simple, colour savvy and show off my monoprints. I make cards now in several styles, using a few different printing methods.
I source my card and envelope blanks from the internet, usually starting on EBAY to find the best deal. I also get my plastic bags from there as well. I love to layer my cards, using a piece of bazzill card to frame the print. Bazzill card is just wonderful! Colours in every shade and not just the primaries or fluros, but absolutely gorgeous shades, for about $1 for a 30cm x 30cm sheet. I source my card from scrapbooking shops or online.
I think what I enjoy about card making is the meditative process of construction and the outcome of a beautiful card to brighten someone's day. They're a cheaper option for someone who can't afford one of my original prints or journals.
I've only recently started using quality colour photocopies of my monoprints for my cards, after finally working out that using an original monoprint on each card wasn't very economical as each monoprint is a one-off!
Below are a few examples of the cards I'm making at the moment.

|These ones are original prints using my Ezi-carve stamps.|
|I like these ones because the cards 'frame' the print.|

Now off you go to ETSY (here's the link again https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/MagicalMonoprinting.) I bet you'll find it hard not to find something you like there!
