50p per card will be donated to the Ribble Rivers Trust.
I am so excited to have teamed up with Ribble Rivers Trust in Lancashire to create these handmade, hand-finished, environmentally-friendly Greetings Cards, made with biodegradable glitter!
Each card is inspired by our beautiful, British water birds and are prints of my watercolour/gouache paintings:
-Dipper: The dipper is a short-tailed, plump bird with a low, whirring flight. When perched on a rock it habitually bobs up and down and frequently cocks its tail. Its white throat and breast contrasts with its dark body plumage. It is remarkable in its method of walking into and under water in search of food.
-Grey Heron: Grey herons are unmistakeable: tall, with long legs, a long beak and grey, black and white feathering. They can stand with their neck stretched out, looking for food, or hunched down with their neck bent over their chest.
Grey Wagtail: The grey wagtail is more colourful than its name suggests with slate grey upper parts and distinctive lemon yellow under-tail. Its tail is noticeably longer than those of pied and yellow wagtails. They have gradually increased their range in the past 150 years and in the UK have expanded into the English lowlands from the northern and western uplands.
Ribble Rivers Trust is an amazing charity which works to look after over 700 square miles, containing more than 6,000 miles of watercourses, of the British Countryside. This means they take care of growing woodlands, ensuring a safe haven for flora and fauna alike and ensuring future generations have this beautiful space to cherish and enjoy.

They truly are a magnificent force to be working with, and I am so proud and happy to be helping them in this way.
Each card is 12x12cm and is blank inside.
The cards (and their packaging!) are made from recycled and recyclable materials, all sourced from the UK via eco-friendly businesses, printed from my home studio on an Eco-Tank printer which avoids excess cartridge waste.
