Birthday DiversityPosted: August 7, 2010
I mentioned the other day that I would post the handmade cards my 16 year old received for her birthday, so here they are. The one above is the one I made. The background is all sponged; I made a wavy mask, sponged the top colour then cut a different wavy pattern across the top of the masking paper, sponged again, new mask, more sponging and so on. I didn’t worry about sponging over the colour I had just done as it did make too much difference. When all my stripes were complete I stamped the image from Inspired by Nature in Artichoke and added a paper insert to write on.
My younger daughter made the abstract collage below, a style I have never tried myself. We were all impressed withe the final mix of textures colours and shapes.
My son continued the sport theme he used when making my younger daughter’s soccer card, changing the sport to tennis and using some self adhering mesh I had for the net. We all think he should make a whole range of sports action cards. Thanks for dropping by to see the diversity in card making styles at our place!
