This weeks card is based on a brief I was given by a friend. She required a 30th wedding anniversary card for her mum and dad. However, as they met through the RAF, she wanted the red , white and blue symbol to be featured on the card. Difficult is not the word, trying to make a card representing 30 years of marriage (pearl) and combine a very bright symbol.
But this is the result.
Using the RAF symbol printed on velum as the main image and covering a large aperture has worked well on this 8x8 card. I wanted to keep the embellishments simple, so as not to detract from the RAF theme, which my friend felt was fundamental to her parents. By adding only a white bow with a pearl dazzler to simple wording, the card was suitably adorned, without overshadowing the main image.
One thing I have learnt from this is to step out of my comfort zone for colour usage. I generally stick to muted colours and this was a real challenge to incorporate not only bright colours , but also having them in a set format.
I'm glad to say my friend loved it!!!!
