Christmas greeting card illustration & design
End Client: Image Craft Inc.
End Product : Greeting Card
Media Used To Create: Watercolor
Copyright Owner: Image Craft, Inc.
Description of the process :
I illustrated & designed this greeting card while working for Image Craft, Inc. as one on their team of designers. I knew I wanted to use more than one tree… So I scanned th illustration above half way through the watercolour process, and created foil-cup die ornaments. Then I finished the illustration & used it on another card design below :

Note : Image Craft, Inc. (Ontario, Canada) closed June 2006 with the bankruptsy of its parent company, Paramount Greetings (USA).  The rights to the artwork I created for Image Craft has been transfered to their new owners… Hallmark. So if you happen to see this design on a new Hallmark Card…give me a buzz :) Thank goodness I’ve kept all the original artwork!
