Floral ACEO with Miyabi Chiyogami Paper

Here's another ACEO in my new series. It's a flower cut from some beautiful origami paper called Miyabi Chiyogami; it's printed with pretty pastel colors and flowery designs. It's very cheerful and reminiscent of spring.

The flower is collaged onto a piece of cardstock that I painted with transparent washes of acrylic paints. I've enhanced a few details with colored pencils. The effect is a subtle and beautiful, and reminiscent of spring.

The card is standard ACEO size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches. It's an original. It's signed and titled on the back.

The card is available for purchase in my Etsy shop:
