One of my favorite retiring sets is Homegrown. I love the line drawing style of the images. They’re so very easy to color: using Watercolor Wonder crayons, I wash over the entire image with a lighter green (Old Olive), then use Always Artichoke (of course) over the already shaded areas. Nothing to fuss over.
I know an artichoke is not a tree. I still think this card (and I know you’re only seeing part of it) is masculine. But why would you send a man — or anyone — an artichoke card?
