Recently, I was commissioned to make a 60th birthday card and as the birthday has passed, I get to share what I created.
The brief was for a sister that loved the ocean.
I started by experimenting with watercolour paints because I wanted to create the look of water rippling over the sand.
I used rock salt to make a bubble effect.
I used a white paint pen to fleck the background to add more texture to the water.
I layered cream embossed paper, tulle, and a fine artist straw, to make a bed for some sea themed chippies.
I used a round scallop chipboard piece to frame the centre piece of the card.
I also added pearls around to tie in the colours. With a chipboard 60, I placed in the corner for this significant birthday celebration.
With the description of her sister, the sentiment "My favourite part of us is you!" was the perfect fit.
Hope you like my latest creation.
Take Care Everyone
