Well the title pretty much says it all ^_^. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been busy putting together cards for a family member and friend. I did a bit better job of taking WIP screenshots this time ^^;.
Birthday Card for Nanny
My nan, affectionally known as ‘nanny’, has been giving me and my sister gifts she hand painted for as long as I can remember. I’ve always admired her work so I wanted to emulate it while also incorporating my own style. I got my sister to take a picture of one of my nan’s painted works and send it to me.
I traced the parts of the painting I wanted to use and put them together around the words ‘for Nanny’.
Pretty chuffed with how this card came out despite my noobery in drawing flower petals ^^;. It’s also probably one of my favourite cards to make so far 🙂
Suzanne Birthday Webpage
I wasn’t able to make it to a friend’s birthday party so I figured I would do another birthday message on a webpage for her. I originally chose to create a mouse arrow, since she’s a web designer and it’s featured in her twitter display pic :P. Once I finished the arrow, I still wasn’t happy with how the webpage looked. I decided I would create another typography piece to go along with it.
Though it was a little late, I managed to get the piece finished and uploaded, which you can check out online here.
Can’t believe we’re already one third through the year! A lot more cards to create yet though ^_^. Which has been your favourite card creation so far?
