Winter Botanical Items Being Sold @ Party City!

Early in 2012, I got a freelance project from a company called Amscan, who makes party supplies and other goods for a big box store called Party City. I designed some concepts for a Christmas plate and napkin set, which was later titled Winter Botanical. My illustration also got made into cups and a rectangular tablecloth. My line is now on the Party City website. Today being Cyber Monday, you can get free shipping or $10 off orders of $65 or more. The coupon code for that is PCG2RS. The patterned tableware also happens to be 50% off! For example, the Winter Botanical lunch plate 60 count packs are on sale now for $8.90 instead of $17.90--all items come in big party packs, which makes for a great bargain! If you are planning an especially big party you can purchase, online, the Mega or Grand party kits, each with over 15% in savings.

I have the items at home as well, here is a picture:

And some original art:

I painted the design using Photoshop, and I used custom brushes for the texture in the leaves and poinsettia flowers. I highly recommend using custom brushes over the default brushes in Photoshop!

You can also purchase Winter Botanical tableware at the Party City stores!
Happy Holidays! :-)

I hope everyone had a great Halloween! For this week's IF challenge, Haunt, I have a pen and ink drawing of a haunted house! I drew with a combination of a Sharpie pen, Copic pens and little bits of ink washes.
It was a fun drawing to make!
