Ingrid 80


My neighbour wanted me to make a card for a lady that turned 80 this past weekend. I got the instructions: hat, white hair, walking frame, Gudrun Sjödén dress (Swedish designer).

Since I did not have stamps that would match - I had to draw the image myself. Wanted her to look young and vivid for her age - so I did not draw too many wrinkles ;-)
Coloured her with my copics.
Added flowers and dew drops in matching colours. And yes - forgot to take a picture of the inside of the card - but used matching papers for the inside as well - since it's hard to write the greetings on dark purple cardstock ;-)
They were very pleased and I am happy that I could capture Ingrid the way they wanted me to.
