The first card (red border) uses a student grade gouache by Reeves. I hate these paints. They are very thick and gloppy which made getting fine details a struggle. They also weren't as opaque as I thought they would be. Everything was freehand except for the Mama Elephant sentiment.
I love this style of Christmas deco--folksy, crafty, DIY. I wish you could feel the card--even the gouache has a bit of texture to it. For the Card Concept I would place this in the mixed media category with a touch of elegant.
