I don't usually share my commissioned cards but I thought maybe it was about time I did.
A work colleague has asked me to make a very special card for her mum in yellow, her mum's favourite colour. She had very specific requirements - she picked the image, requested either wood fence or brick wall background, the colour yellow, a shaped card and flowers - lots of flowers.
I decided to do an easel card because although difficult to do with the shape of the ones I have they look extremely effective.
So I set to work this weekend colouring Lilacs from Lili of the Valley. I've done this with ProMarkers and a little black polychromos pencil for extra shading. I've then fussy cut the vase, butterfly and bee out.
The design papers which had to be hand cut to match the card shape are from Studio 75 and First Edition. I've also used some brown paper to give the whole card a framed look.
There's a panel on the bottom portion which can be either written on or a sentiment added whichever she prefers. This has been done with a Spellbinders die and some antique linen distress ink.
The brown pearlised self adhesive gems are from Scrapberry's and on the bottom left there's a resin corner to act as a stopped for the easel card.
The flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live & Love Crafts. I've taken a few shots so you can see the 3-D effect they have and how they cascade down the right hand side of the card.
So there you have it my commissioned card - know she's gonna love it
