Well your response to my question about my Christmas Brunch invites was fantastic - thank you.!! Lots of good ideas, and great support. Most people wanted the tree, and loads of you wanted bright colour ... well I've gone with the tree but I'm afraid that all my attempts at colour just looked gaudy.
I have no pretensions about any artistic ability, these are really just doodles in paint but I thought you might like to see what I have ended up with, and how I got there.
I decided to go with a grey/lilac card
I brushed this with an almost dry brush of white acrylic paint, then the square
centre in a deep mixture of black, mauve and pink
Using a silver felt pen, I drew my little tree and a rough frame outline
then I went over that with a metallic ink pen, doing both layers is
worth while for the added depth and texture
With a paintbrush I smeared glitter paste over the bauble
tied my silver lilac cord and added some pink polka dots
then using my metallic ink pen, I wrote the invite on the back
before popping each one into its envelope.
Voila! Thank you for joining in.
