Birthday Card

This is a slightly unusual card, but I really like it.





It started life as a mini canvas and ended up as a birthday card for the very sweet Karin. Playing with inks on the canvas was fun, and layers of colour built up quite easily. I also wanted to get a feeling of nature, dimension and texture on the piece and the elements came together well. A boring card backing just wasn't good enough, but the embossed metal sheet coloured with alcohol inks was the answer to that problem.

This mini canvas card is a masterpiece. You've managed to capture so much in it Audrey and having the embossed metal backing makes it double sided. Thank you is beautiful :o)
