Memories of warmer days

I've been busy this week making my sister's birthday card.  As she loves nature as much as I do I thought I'd draw these butterflies I had photographed in the summer on a fresh sprig of ivy I picked from the garden last Sunday. I used tracings of the insects to position them over the outline of the plant before I started with my coloured pencils. I've double mounted the drawing on red card with a narrow band of lime green round the image which brings out the colour of the flowers.


  1. Valerie - simply kind of art - thank you for sharing this precious piece of art. Have a great day.

  2. Valerie, she will LOVE it. This is so beautiful.
