March see’s the start of perhaps a little (dare I say) sunshine, hurray! I think a lot of us are becoming a bit bored of the dull grey skies, but at last some brightness to lift everyones spirits. The start of March also see’s the launch of two exclusive card designs I created for Kew Royal Botanical Gardens, and I am so excited about it. The theme for the range is ‘seed heads’ and these two designs were chosen from a selection of illustrations.
This design was inspired by one of my best selling designs in the 2012 card range. I decided to use a similar composition and selected a bold colour palette of teal, cream, and mustard colours to create a contemporary design.
The second design is a simple single stem of ‘cowslip parsley’. I tied in the mustard colour on the buds of the flower head. This delicate seed head structure contrasts nicely next to the ‘mustard seeds’ design.
Of course these designs are only available from Kew Gardens and Wakehurst Place shops, but I have a wide range of botanical themed cards available from my shop perfect for Mothers day this weekend, make sure you take a peek!
So if you are visiting Kew Gardens be sure to have a look around the gift shop which is full of gorgeous flora and fauna themed gifts.
A big THAK YOU to Kew Gardens for asking me to design these cards for them, and for giving me the opportunity and an excuse to get my pencils out!
