The postcards are pretty thick and when I used inks they don't bleed through. However, the paper will tear after a bit, and this is one of the very few reasons I took a star off. The other major reason is that the pictures are pretty small, and so some details are not great if using colour pencils. I can use ink on them but then it gives me very little room for creativity.
I was given this as a present from a friend, but I loved it so much I got 2 more for my friends so that they could have fun with it too. I wouldn't mind even to get another one for myself!
These include more of Johanna's beautiful work in a small postcard sized format. They're printed on heavy-weight cardstock, suitable for just about any coloring medium. I tend to use mostly colored pencils, but I'll likely be using some alcohol markers with these as well (Spectrum Noir or Copic).
I make hand-crafted greeting cards, and these are the perfect size to use as card fronts. I can add some heat embossing by coloring with a Versamark pen Tsukineko Dual-Ended VersaMarker Pen in Bag, then sprinkling with embossing powder and heat to add a bit of "zing." Speaking of "zing," Stickles glitter glue could also be used with these Ranger TDS-25023 Tim Holtz Designer Series Distress Stickles Glitter Glue, Scattered Straw, 0.5-Ounce.
They would also be lovely matted and framed in a set with coordinated colors.
The fine detail makes these designs both intricate and interesting, and the garden theme is charming. I can't wait to use several of them in my cards. (I'm about 3/4 finished with one of them as I type this.)
If you like Johanna Basford's work, you'll LOVE these postcards. Highly recommended.
The different designs are great. Some are very complex and some significantly less so. There are definitely options on how detailed of a picture you'd like to spend your time on. All are lovely and well thought out.
