Let's Dance with the Heart of Hearts


back of the card:



Kara of Mother Henna hosted a Valentine heART card collaboration this season. There are twenty artists that participated.

First came the line drawing of the tree
I had it made into a rubber stamp.
Then I carved 3 planets into stamps and hand colored the tree.

Since the tree lives on our planet
my Valentine poem
is of a big
love
universal
more than a sweethearts
love
yet for me
living is an
intimate
dance


For more art on Celebrate!: Illustration Friday
