Sorry for the rubbish pics - these have now gone off to their recipients !
Commissions, as you all probably know too, can be tricky. The customer has some wild ideas sometimes as to what can be achieved on cards - however my brief for all 3 of these were very clear and achievable.
This first one was for an autistic 4 year old little girl to give her Grandad. Her special name for him being Dandad. I didnt want to do this too old or too cute and once I had finished it I was hoping it was just right. Thankfully the customer was thrilled with it - especially as I have personalised the inside too.
The next two were for the same Grandma - the brif was the wording, for a boy and with a teddy -not too cute. This is a craftwork cards teddy stamp which worked beautifully being coloured with my beloved distress pens.
and this card was a brief of an elephant, the wording, some pink but not all.
The woodare patchwork elephant is perfect for this sort of card and reviewing them for this post I have realised I have used Craftwork cards papers or stamps on all 3!
I sent photos of the cards for viewing before collection and thankfully all were well received. The cards were all for people I did not know - who had found me through recommendation - so I was especially pleased to have fullfilled the orders with everyone happy with them.
So wonder who will challenge me next ?
Hope you are having a great Sunday xx
