I may be MIA a bit in the next few days as we are blessed to have family living with us between leaving their rental and moving into their own home! Life is busy with little people in the house again!
I was asked to make a card for a teacher who was leaving the kindergarten that my grandchildren have attended.
I started with this piece of background which was made by scrunching up some wax paper and then ironing it onto some shiny card, the wax formed a resist, which I coloured over with ink. As this was made over a year ago, I cannot tell you which inks I used :-).
(My apologies for the reflection in the photo, but that was the sheen on the card)
I then picked up this heart I had played with using my watercolours , cut it into a square and added a faux stitched border and Best Wishes stamp.
I added a shadow and two wee hearts to represent the two children from that part of the family who had attended that centre.
These two parts were mounted over a bright pink base, and the rhinestones added in the corner. The colours used were influenced by the ethnicity of the staff member.
I was pleased with this, as was the recipient.
