A card for a friend

Now a birthday card made for a good friend who says she enjoys my work ... such friends are always to be encouraged!


The image for this card was cropped from the much larger one shown in the accordion fold book in the last post. It was inkjet printed as before on Smooth Pearl 290 paper from Fotospeed. It was further cropped in Photoshop and then hand cut to exploit the negative shapes as an experiment to see whether this was something I wanted to pursue.

I think it is, either in this flat-mounted form or perhaps in an accordion book with cut-outs. Mounting the image away from the card on small supports helped to create a slight shadow. If the depth of the supports was increased, it might be even more effective - I will try this out too.
