Phoenix fits the bill. I chose a limited palette and a style that resembles a wood-block print. I thought it made a change to use iris rather than the more usual lilies. Iris was a Greek goddess of the rainbow, which she used to travel down to earth with messages from the gods and to transport women's souls to the underworld. The three upright petals and three drooping sepals are symbols for faith, valour and wisdom. They have been printed on matt textured board and cost £1.20 each from your local trader. I will have all my cards and wrap for sale at Open Studios in July.
