I’ve been having fun illustrating a few different designs for my full time work with Garnish Garden lately and wanted to do something similar for Cobalt & Kin. Of course, it stands to reason that I’d turn to a few of my favourite things: plants in pots, vases with flowers and shelves….
I’ve also liked all the adult colouring in books and thought a gift card was a nice way for people to interact with my illustrations – you can colour in the card and give it to a loved one or leave it as is for the recipient to play with. I also made the card so that once flattened it makes a little picture that can be stuck to the fridge or even framed!
If you want a little illustrators secret here’s a tip… use a restrained colour palette and try to use a few unexpected colours. I have a pinterest board with any images that have good colour combos and using the image above as my inspiration (vases from the fantastic Studio Twocan) I did a quick colour in which I think makes for a more compelling image!
You can purchase the card in the shop. Happy colouring!
