Opening my shop and packaging my artwork

I recently opened my etsy shop at https://mardatha.etsy.com/. I started with 8 original watercolor paintings and I want to add new ones each week. Today, I packaged one of my original watercolor paintings for a client. My goal when packaging is to keep my artwork safe and make a beautiful and hand-made gift that will delight the client.

I prepared a hand-painted gift tag and gathered all my materials for packaging. I signed my paintings on the front using watercolors and a pen. I also stamped them on the back and wrote the date and the title of each artwork. 

Afterwards I wrapped my artwork in a pink tissue paper with a purple ribbon and used an odule paper for protection before inserting it into a cardboard mailer.
