Today's card is simple to create, but it so elegant. My husband's Mom celebrated a birthday last week. My husband is an only child and I know that at least part of her still seems him as a little boy. I thought this would be perfect.
If you have been following along, you know I've been practicing black hair. My husband has really dark brown hair, so I thought I'd try doing really dark brown with black shadows. The ink is really heavy and you can see it looks glossy in the photos. It has a little shine to it in real life, but the camera really picked up this detail. There are probably two things going on here. One I have a lot of ink on the paper. Dark pigments are thicker than lighter ones. The paper gets saturated easily and looks shiny. Second, I probably need to clean my markers. This just adds to the first problem. Don't forget to clean your markers from time to time. It looks like I have some work to do.
I created the banners by cutting coordinating decorative paper strips. I was lucky to find some that matched the colors I chose for the balloons. I decided to make the blue banner a little shorter than the pink one.
