A Birthday card I made for my Mom

Birthday Card I made for Mom
Originally uploaded by sjmcdowell I made this Birthday card for my Mothers 90th birthday this past Saturday. I call it the forever card as it is made on a 5x7 canvas panel.  The background is painted first with acrylic paints. I then cut out various flowers and positioned them on the panel with gesso. I Used a filigree stamp and a white gel pen for drawing, writing and highlighting. I also used a gold leaf pen to highlight parts of the flowers. lastly I added some lovely lace, a rose button and a cute little butterfly. On the back of the card I wrote a special sentiment for my Mom. The card rests on an easel in which I painted gold. Mom loved it!!
