Art Therapy Notecards

Art Therapy 20 Notecards & Envelopes

Artists - Chellie Carroll and Lizzie Preston





These notecards were purchased by me. I have been looking for notecards to colour for sometime. I didn't want postcards, but notecards with envelopes. I have seen some notecards recently that are ridiculously detailed, so to receive these Art Therapy notecards today was fantastic.

Comment: It is such a thrill to receive a hand coloured card as I found out recently. I've kept it and still get a buzz out of it. There isn't one design in this pack of notecards that I wouldn't enjoy colouring. They are lovely. And the extra plus is that I'd be pleased to send an uncoloured one to a friend to colour in themselves, as I'm sure even a beginner colourer would enjoy these images



Layout & paper: the cardboard pack opens out with 20 envelopes tucked into the left hand side. These have a small motif on them and have a flecked, recycled paper look to them. The opening edges of the cards are set into a gum binding from which they can be easily and carefully removed. You may need to tease the card open. They are on white card stock but not heavy and you can flip through the cards like a book. There are ten different designs and two cards for each design; each with a different coloured background. The inside of every card is blank. Even the backs of the cards have a little motif for you to colour.

Drawing: fantastic drawings. There's nothing too detailed but the images still give the colourer scope to shade and enjoy the designs. As always, don't assume that alcohol markers and other pens won't bleed or shadow through. There is nowhere to test out your pens in this pack, so you may have to sacrifice a card for this purpose. The pack contains charming drawings of birds, a fox, a bear, butterflies, a gorgeous cat, a tree, Paisley design, a garden scene and the cover image. The background to each drawing is precoloured so any colouring you do will have a professional look to it. The drawing has even line width and some are slightly more detailed.
