This etegami was painted with sumi ink and water soluble gansai paint on a soft washi card. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art usually done on postcards, and meant to be sent through the postal service to someone. This is dedicated to all artsy/craftsy mothers who treasure anything made by their children’s own hands over something store-bought any day.

Featured in Inspirational Greeting Cards group.

    Adorable work as always. In order to keep this in the Just For You challenge, it needs a dedication in the description and entered into the group. Thanks!

  • It’s already in the group from quite a while ago, but I’ll add the dedication. Sorry!
