Here is a 50th birthday card for another lovely lady.
Across the background I used a wash of watercolours. I drew a Roman style column and then used the 'Folk It' techniques to paint the flowers cascading down. I doodled a large letter L (Roman numeral for the number 50) added some white Signo Uni-Ball pen, some gems and that was it really.
The only slight problem being that while I was cutting the card down to fit the 8x8 card blank my Mum called. Instead of waiting until I was off the phone to trim down the card I carried on and made a real 'pigs ear' of it, taking too much off the top and side.
Such is life, bet you've all done it at some point - or should I say "Et tu, Brute?". Hahaaa. Suz xxx
