Hand-Painted Birthday Postcards

It is so nice to get something in the mail on your birthday, to appreciate that someone thought of you and your day, in advance, and sent wishes on a journey through the USPS to your mailbox. Postcards are a sweet and simple way to say it - Happy Birthday. Recently dug out of the too-crafty-for-mass-production file, these birthday postcards give an extra ounce of thoughtfulness in their tiny watercolored cakes and chandeliers, by hand. In order to produce 96 postcards for Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah GA, I chose a pallette of colors you might find in...ohh...cake frosting, pastels. I tried to keep them somewhat consistent and painted all 96, one color at a time, a loose splash or tiny drop of color overlaid on the printed sketch. YOU can find a set of Birthday Postcards HERE.
