Custom 60th Birthday Card

One of my connections on social media saw a post of a card I made for my Aunt’s birthday. She loved the stylized flowers on the card and asked if I could do something similar for her husband’s upcoming 60th birthday.

She didn’t have anything particular in mind. Basically, she just wanted a similar style. 

I’ve been creating a series of “wonky birthday cakes” for a number of years now, so I started there, added some flowers and included a bird to deliver the birthday message. In order to achieve the layers, I used a combination of watercolors, water-soluble markers and crayons,  india ink, and acrylic paint pens.

The customer was thrilled with the finished card. Since her husband loved it too, they framed it and displayed it in their dining room.
