New Mother's Day Printed wrapping paper and cards

It's been a busy few weeks of developing new products for Spring. I am ever conscious that I want to hand make a proportion of my work so with that in mind I went to Leicester last week to expose a brand new screen to set about doing some screen prints for Mothers Day cards and matching wrapping paper.

Unfortunately my new screen is massive, it's not actually, it's A1 in size but as I am bearly 5ft with short arms to match the short legs, the purchase of this new screen may be a bit of a school boy error.

I was trying to be frugal as I can obviously squeeze more designs and products on to a larger screen but it only just fits on to my base board, think I may also need a new dining room table to work on. I should have realised the problem when I struggled to fit it into the car. Well I'd better get used to it I suppose as I'm stuck with it now!

Here is me working through some prints for new Mother's Day products.

Gotta love a bit of hot pink.

The finished items are available here in my etsy shop.

Just gorgeous, and so nice to see something fresh which is different to all the stuff in the card shops. Love the hot pink too.

I'm so glad my new designs are being so well received, I love the simplicity of screen printing too Chel.

I'm glad you think they are different from the cards you find in the shops Kay, it's a fine balance!

Thank you both for your kind comments, much appreciated x
