I am really enjoying working with the bright colours of watercolors but for this cat I used acrylics to create the bright red background.
I painted this cat card on canvas paper and then attached it behind this acid free quality 5 x 7 mat. This tiny painting and mat were then affixed permanently to a blank quality Strathmore greeting card that comes with an envelope.
These are a great way to share ACEO art cards that many times just end up in a drawer or maybe an album. I love the idea of sharing them as gifts with your sentiments written inside. This 5 x 7 card can then be framed in a standard frame or one that will hold a 5 x 7.
This idea makes them really the perfect gift for anyone who has everything and you just don't know what to get them. I have signed the back of the card.
ACEO art cards are traditionally 2.5 x 3.5 inches (same size as baseball and trading cards) It was always a great way to afford artist's paintings! They are still quite popular today.
