Birthday Wishes

Oops! I promised to show this card yesterday but forgot! I made it for a trendy friend who enjoys going to rock concerts - I think the background paper is very fitting.

The gold leaf on the tag is from some cheap jewellery. The image is coloured with Koh-i-noor pencils, I really battle to get the shading right, what should be shadow and what should be light. Does anybody else battle with this?

I see it's been quite a while since my last post!!

I've been doing some card making, this one for my Aunt who loves cats

I had in mind to use rusty staples to make the two 'X's but I didn't have anything like that so I used two thin strips of card instead. I guess I could also have stitched them with thread.

Don't you love the little fish bone? It came inside a packet of animal buttons that I bought a few years back

I'll be back tomorrow to share another card that I finished this evening. See you soon!
