A Birthday Card

A birthday card for Hillary
I made this late at night and the control I lost through my inability to keep a steady hand, I think, made for a better result.
I thought I had dried the indian ink well enough with the hair drier, but alas, it was too thick in places and when I washed over the water soluble pencil the ink bled.
In all the murkiness the lettering didn't stand out, so I added white gesso with a tiny brush.
Maybe not the greatest card ever... but always better than a bought one!
Happy Birthday Hillary.

  1. Hear hear, I would rather have a hand made card for sure, no matter.
    However sometimes people buy cards for me that are equally as valuable. Thanks Steph.
