My Blue Summer House

My Blue Summer House

Wednesday, 8 June 2011


I thought I would have a go at making my own images for a card. I wanted to draw a little girl and a little boy with cute faces. My inspiration comes from photographs of my two children when they where younger, I wanted to capture their beautiful faces and wide eyes. Here is one of my designs.

Image - Hand drawn by me.

Hints and Tips
I have added thread to one of the button holes to add a bit more dimension to the card.
