About Christy Vance

I am an elementary art teacher, and have always liked playing around in Photoshop. I recently had a baby and designed my birth annoucements. Since then, I've done a few more for others. I found minted's design challenge and thought, "Why not?" So, I am new at this, and ready to learn!

Thanks so much, Christy. Yes, for my recent hand-lettered designs, I use pen and a sketch pad, then scan and trace using Illustrator.

Hi Christy- Thank you so much for the compliments! I make a lot of my images in Adobe Illustrator. I also really love taking old public domain clip art and adding to it to make it my own. Thanks again!
