A sneak peek at my new Hawaiian monstera leaves letterpress cards. These larger sized cards are 4.25 inches x 5.5 inches folded, 8.50 x 5.5 inches when opened flat. I hand illustrated these monstera leaves, worked on them in photoshop, and had them processed into plates. After hand mixing the ink for a golden green color, I printed the leaves and text on creamy ecru 100% cotton paper. The paper is thick with 110 lb. weight with a slight texture. Monstera grows all over the islands and adds to the lush green beauty of our tropical paradise in Hawaii. I'll have these in my shop soon.
