Thanks and Punches

Good morning!  I've spent a bit more time this week with creating (yay!).  I made 12 cards for clients of Jeff's (I send thank you cards to all his clients), which took a lot more time than I thought they were going to, as you will see in the picture:

I stamped the illustration onto the cardstock, and then I coloured the buildings.  Since I'm only using blender pens as opposed to markers, it takes a long time because I have to re-fill the blender pens with more ink every square centimeter or so.  It wasn't that bad, it just wasn't done in one sitting, so it feels like it took longer than it probably actually did.

Whenever we ask Alexander what movie he wants to watch, his answer is almost always Tarzan, and so I was inspired to create Tantor.  Do you notice the resemblance?  I don't, but at least he's an elephant!

And I wanted to make a Valentine's Day card that wasn't so obviously valentine-y, so I thought to make these cuties:

If you can't figure them out, they are eskimo-kissing Eskimos.  I have put them on a card, and you can see it here.

I have completely fallen in love with punch-art, so I think I will be making a few more punch-people...


  1. Ooooo I love the elephant and I especially love the Eskimos! That is such a cute idea!!

  2. thanks so much! I plan to make more characters, for sure!
