Card Challenge


Yes, the title could be from my wife's blog, but this is a challenge I've gotten into. Actually, it's the first I've ever gotten into.....

Anyway, the theme is winter season. Winter in Southern California isn't exactly Currier & Ives for it's scenery. But, I know it's getting cold somewhere when I start to see Canadian Geese coming down for the winter. So, that's my theme and I'm sticking with it!

Right now, it's a 5x7 print. I'm thinking I'll ultimately use ochre or rust Akua Itaglio inks on a natural mulberry paper. ANY feedback would be appreciated!!!! The photo is a test print, not a proof.

GREAT IMAGE! I love everything about it; simple yet sophisticated, nice play of positive & negative shapes. The only thing I'd change is to elongate the tail of the "P" to make it a little clearer. Otherwise, can't wait to receive mine in the post! ;)

Hello!
I agree with Amie about the P, and I Love this image, I'll never see Canadian geese all the way down here in Australia so i love the background behind the print and why it feels like Christmas is coming to you!
