Bon Voyage

Orang utan cardCrafting has had to take a back seat just lately – a new role at work involving more hours has seen to that. But a friend’s daughter is off to Borneo for a month at the end of the week so I rustled up a quick card to wish her “bon voyage”. She loves Borneo’s orang utans and this card turned out pretty much exactly as I’d envisaged. I combined two free digital images into one; the orang utan started out hanging from a tree but a little bit of photo editing made it – I hope – seem as though he was waving from behind the suitcases.

I coloured both images with Promarkers, adding a little bit of shading with some cheap W H Smith colouring pencils. The greeting was a standard one in Craft Artist Professional.

I’m entering this into the challenge over at Stamping Sensations, where the theme is “Feature a Creature”.

  1. Wonderful, Helen! What a great card and perfect for our Feature a Creature theme this month. Reminds me of Terry Pratchett’s Librarian character! Thanks so much for joining in at stamping sensations and good luck!
