Watercolour class day 6 - card 2 A birthday card for a special little boy

Next Saturday will be my little boy's 3rd Birthday. I can't actually believe he is about to be that grown up! I think 3 means he is officially no longer a baby!!

I am so delighted that this class has allowed me to create such a full on technical card for him which he will hopefully love. He is such a cheeky little monkey and so it seems so fitting to have that as the character on his card. I was able to use my new pencils again, use the masking fluid and also use some traditional waterpaints.

This card did take me over an hour to create, but I am so pleased with the end results. I hope my little monkey will like it too.

I have just seen the inspiration photo at Inkspirational Challenges and it is a photo with balloons….

how fitting is that! I am therefore going to enter this card into the challenge. Huge congratulations to Carol for Just me C, who has just been made DT member there! xx

Any comments as always so very much appreciated. Really looking forward to tomorrow's lessons xx


  1. WOW again, Laura! Your son (they grow up so fast! My niece is already four; my nephew two! I want them to stay little - and cuddly, as they are now - for ever so much longer!) will be delighted with what mommy has made for him! Your watercolouring is soooo eye-catching in creating this darling scene. The heart-shaped balloons: beyond adorable! Thank you so much for the shout-out and especially, thank your for joining us at Inkspirational Challenges!! Fabulous card - I'm smiling!! Hugs~c

  2. He will love it! I love the softness of the colour on the balloons and their shape.
    Thank you for joining us at Inkspirational Challenges. Come back next time! Marina
