My sister liked the Christmas Robins I made her for her so much that she asked me to make her another set of cards – this time birthday cards.
Birthdays always make me think of party balloons. I started with just one balloon, but it looked so lonely I had to add another and then another…
The final design is a roomful of balloons all floating on the ceiling – exactly what I would want on my birthday (hint, hint).
I actually found this card quite hard to do. My prints normally have many layers and I am used to thinking in terms of layers of backward images piled one on top of another. It was a little disconcerting to be able to see clearly how the image was going to look before I had printed it – I did think for a moment I had done something really wrong and missed out a crucial step! Saying that I am very pleased with the balloons (and so is Katherine).
As well as the birthday cards I was asked to print, I also printed the balloons onto postcards. I thought they would make good notecards or invitations.
After packaging the notecards up for Folksy, I discovered I have a few left over. I thought I would give them away to one (or two) lucky readers of my blog. To be in with a chance of winning the cards, just leave a comment below. The winner(s) will be chosen at random on Friday evening.
