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 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!
