The creation of BurntCarmine.
My name is Karen Davis, owner of BurntCarmine, and painting is my hobby. One day, I was browsing the internet for inspiration to create new art when I stumbled across something called an artist trading card. I never knew this world of miniature art existed and I was quickly intrigued by its popularity. These 2.5” x 3.5” cards are traded among artists and sold as an affordable option to art collectors. This is so clever, I thought, as it would be an efficient way for me to experiment with new art styles and techniques. Right away I started cutting down my art paper and creating art cards, one after another. Once I had a small collection of them I decided to sell them on, dare I say, eBay. The sales were exceptional and this gave me encouragement to keep creating. As I was cutting down my next batch of art cards, I wondered if there was any demand for blank art cards. I tried posting them and to my surprise the blanks sold better than my art. I began to put all my focus on cutting and selling blank art cards. Soon after, I increased my inventory by cutting different sizes and decided to open this Esty shop. The shop name, BurntCarmine, was selected from one of my favorite paint colors and as a reminder of how this all started. I still love to paint and will occasionally list my art for sale, but I devote most of my time providing supplies to other artists and crafters.
I reside in MD, have a full time job in retail and run this Etsy shop from home on evenings and weekends. My passion is to make BurntCarmine a successful business.
