'my cards' - cutting paper

an invitation card in the process of cutting ... 
i love the way the shadows play ...
need a break? tea or coffee for you?
so many possibilities for collage... in the end i go for the paper lace. (see below) 
cutting an image out of paper means reduction: details are simply cut off because the lines cannot be too thin. midtones of colour are reduced to black&white. what remains is light and shadow, surface and contour. i love it. at its best it's the essence.

this card is clearly inspired by our four legged room mate!
these cards combine my new love for paper cuts with my old passion for stamps.
these are portraits of my two children;-)
