Cath Collection

Another frame commission, with Cath Kidston inspired elements at the same time trying to keep it quite girly... I made this card for my inlaws, who at this very minute are in the throws of moving house as I put this on here! I used this Cath Kidston Keyring to inspire the colours and look of the card. I didnt have a stamp that said home seet home so I had to mix and match what I had, by masking off the unwanted areas and inking the word I needed. A resourceful technique to use what you've got!

On the subject of houses... this unusual commission was to celebrate the fact that a couple had lived in their house for 40 years, the picture of their house (on the front) is a scanned image that they used for the invitation to the party.
And on the subject of years... I made this for another commission for a couples sister who turned 80, without knowing it the lady in question enjoys her garden, so it worked out well with the particular tag I used. I do like that saying 'Bloom where you are planted'
