Fancy Friendship

I really love making special cards for people who I think will understand how much effort (for 'effort' read: 'blood, sweat and tears') have gone into making their creation.  Today's card is one of two I've made for 2 special friends.  I can only share one here for now (I'm not sure if the other recipient has opened hers yet) but this version has been sent to a friend who I met at Uni, more than 20 years ago, when she was living in the UK. She's now back in her native Tokyo, but has previously sent me very intricate traditional Japanese cards, so I like to make more of an effort with a fancy fold or shape.  I've made a twist 'n' pop card which is actually easier than it looks and I was really pleased with the outcome.

Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Fur: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo
  • Grass: Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint
  • Reds: Candied Apple, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany
  • Greys: Pumice Stone, Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
