Happy New Year of the Snake!

A greeting card I illustrated for The Year of the Snake 2013:
I just started a new line of greeting card illustration for
The Greeting Card Universe.

The name of my Greeting Card store is
where you can order greeting cards anytime.

It was fun creating this card for the year of the snake 2013.

My Process in creating the Card:
1. I made a pen and ink drawing of the girl and then scanned it using my Wacom tablet (Bamboo)

2. I colored the girl and designed the pattern of her dress digitally.

3. I painted the snake in Photoshop using the paintbrush tool.

4. Finally I chose the text and designed the layout of the card digitally and submitted it to
The Greeting Card Universe. for approval.

That was a clever and brilliant holiday card this new year. This year, I also created my own new year card and write my personal new year messages on it. Thanks for sharing inspiration.

Cheers and hugs xxxx
