How to make a birthday card...

A friend of mine turned 50 this weekend and instead of presents she wanted everyone to make her a home-made card. Nice idea but she is an artist so it was a bit daunting...

I decided to produce something that was an homage to the current David Hockney exhibition where he used the Brush app. on the ipad (and it avoided me having to be too creative). I created a simple 'painting' and printed it out....

I then created a still-life using newspaper type cut out and stuck down, a cup-cake, candle and the small card, which I then photographed with my ipad. This I printed out onto photographic paper - I was really rather pleased with the result and will be doing more!
