Iguana be your Valentine - Funny Valentine's Day Card

Iguana Valentine for Lizard Lovers by Concertina Press

When I first spotted this cool iguana drawing from the late 1800's I knew I just had to make it into a card! It took me a few days to come up with "Iguana Be Your Valentine" but I knew it was the perfect fit - the only catch was that the original Iguana illustration was far more...grumpy looking? Don't believe me? Check it out:

Luckily with a little photoshop magic I was able to turn his frown upside down, quite literally using the "liquify" tool and now he's just too charming! I also enhanced the colors of the original science plate which had faded over time. I just love giving new life to old illustrations - you can see more of my cool before and after work with old science illustrations here: how Concertina Press cards are made.

You can purchase this funny Valentine's day card in my etsy shop along with several other funny Valentine's Day CardsIguana Be Your Valentine Card
