Damselfly mandala card with a shadow affirmation is a nice reminder that love leads the way. This 5" x 7" folded card is digitally printed using the highest quality pigment inks on silky, bright white, acid-free paper. It comes with a beautifully made, bright white envelope. The photograph I used to create the mandala is printed on the back of the card with the photo location and a special wish for the recipient. Interior of the card is blank and the paper is super smooth, not slick, and takes gel, ballpoint, and other inks well. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.

Framing. This damselfly mandala card is created using high-quality materials, such as might be used in a museum. The print is sharp, bright, and frameable. To protect the vibrancy of the artwork, I frame using UV glass or acrylic, and I recommend it. If you use plain glass or acrylic, make sure you hang this sweet, little piece and all your beautiful art away from direct sunlight.

About the Art. The mandala art on this card, titled Shadow Dance, was created from a photo of an ebony jewelwing damselfly on an American beech leaf at Antietam National Battlefield, Sharpsburg, Maryland. Long associated with fairies, damselflies come in metallic greens, blues, reds, and purples, and hang out near water, be it a river, a creek, a marshy or shrubby wetland, or a persistent puddle. I found the one in the photo along Antietam Creek, not far from where Union troops crossed on September 17, 1862, in an attempt the flank the Confederate battle line during the Battle of Antietam. I was amazed by the level of detail visible through the beech leaf. The veining of the wings was even visible. Likely, this damselfly was staking out its territory, waiting for a mosquito or fly to wander by. Adult damselflies live a few weeks, long enough to mate and lay their eggs in whatever gently moving water they'd staked out as an acceptable nursery.

She's been gardening since the age of three, when she was put to work plucking rocks from the family vegetable patch, and was gifted her first growlight set-up at the age of eight. Linda is best known for her wildflower photography and the digital mandala art she creates from her nature photos, but is also a mixed media artist and published author. Her quirky first novel, "Giving Voice to Dawn", was published in November 2016 and was followed up with "The Lion's Apprentice" in June 2020. The series follows the magical romp of a woman plucked by the Universe from the cubicles of Corporate America and dropped into the crease between "this world and that" where Spirit Animals carry messages, disembodied voices spout wisdom, and you never know who might show up to walk you back home.
