This is the front of a birthday card that was a custom order.
Vital statistics ~ approx. 15cm x 20cm (6" x 8").
Hand drawn with indian ink on acid~free white mount board and then mounted onto a soft grey blue marbled card. I've done it this way so it can be framed if they want.
There is a white insert (also acid free) inside the card ~ with a hand drawn message also in indian ink.
This is sort of like a "where's Wally" picture :^)
First name ~ Sue (the letter "S"), 60th birthday, birthday candle, birth date, star sign, tennis racquet and her footy team is Collingwood (that's the Magpie!). Oh, and the part oval border where the date is echoes the shape on the club emblem.
And how tricky is it trying to draw a Magpie??
The rest of the card was really quite easy compared to that little critter! LOL...
