Greeting Cards

I am working on a new line of dog/cat greeting cards and this is my first sample. The photo is handcolored and distressed with sandpaper, then mounted on a handpainted acrylic background. It measure's 5x7 and would be part of a series. In an effort to produce these with less time involved, I am going to try and scan the original hancolored photo and get prints of it already altered...that way I can sell them for less and create more inventory. I am probably going to leave them blank, eventhough I am tempted to put my little sayings on the art work (i.e.-"Home is where the dog is.") What do you guys think? I would love to hear your opinions !

You know, blank cards are always open to interpretation, which is great. BUT...sometimes they feel, well, sort of cold. Yet, if you add your own sayings, then you've limited your audience. As you can tell, I'm obviously indecisive and have been of no help to you whatsoever!!

Either way, the image of the dog is fabulous!

Love this! It's bright and vibrant and the subject matter is just so dog gone happy!
