This card is from an original mixed media print, by me, DS Irvin, titled "An Orange Ladybug & Purple Rose Help Chase Away Evil Spirits."
Most of my cards come with a small story, written at the time the original artwork is created. This is printed on the backs of the cards, along with the title of the piece and date it was created. They are hand signed "DS Irvin" which is how I sign my original prints and artwork and are hand numbered. This is #5 and is an open edition. The story for this artwork reads: "In spring and summer, this black Neko, who is handy for keeping evil spirits and stalkers at bay, likes to employ seasonal helpers. His favorite garden helper is his orange ladybug, who gives off excellent warning vibes to unwanted entities. He also enjoys the fragrance of his purple rose bush where he prefers to be seated during the nice summer days, on his golden cushion."
This ACEO (which stands for Art Cards, Editions & Originals) measures the standard 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" and is laminated. I choose to laminate cards which are prints and don't include any hand enhancing or painting as it makes them far more durable, increasing their longevity, and enriches the colors.
This card was printed with a color laser printer on acid free cover stock. The ghosted watermark does not appear on the actual print.
