Nanny papercut - Completed

Here is the finished Nanny Commission papercut.  It took me around 25 hours or thereabouts.

Nanny papercut - new commission

I've been commissioned to papercut a piece for a family whose long-term Nanny is leaving them to go travelling.  My brief was to portray the three children with the Nanny in an outdoors setting.  They enjoyed visiting castles and gardens.  The two family cats and a tray of cupcakes will go in there somewhere too!  The first picture is my initial, very rough, drawing that I submit for approval before starting the papercut.

Indian Elephant (re-cut)

I cut a smaller version of this elephant about a year ago - but forgot to make it available as a print.  As I get so many requests to do more, I thought I'd re-cut a larger version with a bit more fine detail in it.  Also available as a print.

Ceilidh Papercut

I finished the commission today.  I need to mount it on green, but we haven't decided which green yet.  Here are the options.  I'd be tempted by Jewel as I think it really pops out on that colour.  But ultimately it's not my choice.

Wedding Anniversary commission

I've been commissioned to produce an Anniversary papercut for a couple who wish to have a piece depicting their wedding party, which was an Irish Ceilidh!  The papercut is white and will be on a green background - although I haven't sourced the final green yet.  It's a similar sort of piece to my Morris Dancing papercut, which the couple actually saw in my Hampstead Exhibition in February.  The piece is 40cm x 40cm.
