New on my Etsy shop….. Mother’s Day Cards

It was cutting it a bit fine, but I’ve just finished my designs for my Mother’s Day cards, and they’re now available to buy on my Etsy shop!

I have drawn and painted in watercolour a cute tattoo-inspired ‘Mum’ design, as well as a sweet bird and banner ‘Marvelous Mother’ design. I’ll be painting one saying ‘Mom’ instead of ‘Mum’ ready for US Mother’s Day in May too.

Each card is printed in high resolution on high quality, thick 350gsm art card from FSC credited paper stock. There is a light satin coating on the outside, whilst the inside is left un-coated, making it easier for you to write your own message. Each card measures 4.13″ x 5.82″ / 105mm x 148mm (A6) and includes a good quality matte white envelope.

I’m also selling A4 sized prints which will make lovely gifts for your marvelous Mums too!

Wednesday Wants……. Markus Lupfer Sequin Flamingo Sweater

Markus Lupfer Grey Sequin Flamingo Sweater

There are lots of flamingo jumpers on the High Street at the minute….. I’ve been umming and ahhhing between the Warehouse and Dorothy Perkins ones as to which I prefer. But when I saw THIS one, I was decided. At £270 from ASOS I’m not likely to be getting it, but then that’s not the point……

I’ve always loved pink and grey together, and the juxtaposition of the soft grey slouchy sweater and the shiny pink of the embellishment is what I adore about this. It’s also available in black, but it’s definitely this one that’s got me after a pair of leggings to throw it on over.

Also in the Markus Lupfer Collection at Liberty are these two gorgeous T-Shirts…… I want these almost as much as the sweater in fact…….

I know that crystals on T-Shirts in pretty shapes are nothing new, but I can’t help but fall for this one, perhaps because of the water colour effect of the wonderful green. And I am mad for the little patches of fabric which make up the feathers of this Macaw embellishment.

There are plenty of covetable pieces in the collection, but it’s the flamingo I’d snap your arm off for. Want!
