A little touch of...

...Venice.

Hi there bloggers, "Life" seems to be getting in the way of posting/creating at the moment but this week holds an event that had to be catered for...Mum's birthday.

I had been stuggling to come up with an idea for Mum's card but then a visit to Barleylands and 'tah-dah!!!' - there on Andy's desk was a sheet of Kanban card titled "Views of Venice" - Italy & Venice in particular is one of Mum's favourite places.

So with a bit of folding and cutting, I went from this...

...and this...

...to this...

...and finally finished...


The Kanban card is made up from 4 views of the city which are easily trimmed to make toppers with a bit of matt & layering. The detail in the artwork is beautiful and reminds you of the pencil drawings made by many artists in their sketch books.

I have kept the card simple as I know Mum will appreciate the drawings and will not want lots of fussiness detracting from them but I also bought some more of this card as I want to have a play with some colouring - I think just a touch of water colour will give a very different effect.

Anyhoo, that's Mum's card - hope you like it and although I know she doesn't come on here...Happy Birthday Mum...............................................
