Happy Birthday Jacob

In honour of my godson's 1st birthday, I thought I'd share the card I made for him when he was born.

I had taken the photos ready to blog and never got round to it, but better late than never right? This is one of my favourite cards I've made to date. Completely original, personally handcrafting each element.

The background was created using perfect pearls in a spritzer bottle, then I sketched out the letters, baby and planets and added definition and shading with water colour paints. Then they were simply stuck onto the background. To add a bit of dimension I used sticky foam pads on the star, the baby and on the planets ring.

Simple but effective I think :D
