SPA-Violets


Violets

In the language of flowers, violets signify love and faithfulness.  I've been making valentine postcards, so it seemed a natural match.  The woman is Agnes Strickland, artist unknown.  The violets are from an 1897 Burpee Seed catalog cover.  The French script is a stock image from DeviantArts, and the rest is my own.

  3. This is beautiful, Linda! It fits in so well with the mail art effect. Gorgeous design and a wonderful contrast between the violets and the sepia background. Great work.
