Retro cards

Hi everyone just a quick post to show how I created some Retro cards



All the backgrounds are green or blue Bistre.

I then drew out my design, all except the reindeer were just out of my head, for the reindeer I used a reference photo.

I painted the design in white acrylic so that the colours were bright 

I repeated the process for all cards


Once I was satisfied with all I mounted them onto a plain white card. 



I hope you like them as I love them, and I loved creating them too!


Take care, hugs
