That's another weekend gone then! I've been catching up with friends over a curry and a few drinks on Saturday evening, taking our first drive in the Caterham with the roof off, then a spot of gardening this afternoon in the lovely sunshine.
So, not much time for crafting but I do have a Silver Wedding anniversary card to share with you that I made for a work colleague.
I knew I wanted a monochrome design but had my usual uncertainty about where to fit the greeting and the names before I finally came up with a layout that worked.
The greeting panel is curved and raised up in the middle for some dimension... which is why the border looks a bit uneven in the photo - it's just the angle, honest! Oh, and sorry for the generally poor photo, monochrome is tricky to capture!
I coloured the image in Copics and it actually turned out how it looked in my head! Even Dr Hubby was complimentary about it and said the balloon was my best shading of a shiny 3D object ever - wow!
