A Bird In The Hand

MiniCards

Melissa Crowley's birds are very stoic creatures - the very opposite of angry, in fact - whether sitting, partridge-like, in a pear tree, hiding in mistletoe or staring across a branch of firefly sparkles.

About this design preview

The beauty of this design is in the fusion of shapes from the natural world - the bird silhouettes, the mistletoe or bonsai pear tree - with modern design techniques. This also applies to the colours, those vibrant turquoises, tans and burgundies are soft and natural, but still sharp and vivid. A Postcard set for anyone with one foot in the internet and the other in the garden (and both feet in wellies).
