It's my husband's birthday today and since he's so hard to buy for I settled on making him a card. I thought I'd share it with you as it is a really simple way to make a really special "keepable" greeting card or a piece of artwork for someone.
I took an image I found on the internet and traced the outline of it onto watercolour paper with pencil.
I then went over all the outlines with my pen, adding some cross-hatching shadows to the design, to give it some more depth.
Then I filled in the spaces with watercolours, and once they were dry, I went over some of the outlines again with the pen.
I have stuck it lightly to the black card since I might frame it at some stage.
Happy birthday Mr. Muck! x
Oh, and Master J enjoyed his "actual birthday" cake... Now to make the party cake!
