She's here

Afternoon friends and followers my granddaughter arrived safely at 11:12 last night, stubbornly refusing to be born since Wednesday lol. 

So I can finally show the card I had made to congratulate them. I have always loved Klimt and so this card is heavily influenced by his mother and child. 

I drew the base influenced by this picture and added dad. 

I started to build up my shading
I realised my proportions were wrong for the hand and no matter how hard I could not get it right so tucked it in a picket lol 

I used prismsa colour pencil to colour my drawing. I heat embossed around the family with a variety of colours to represent the gold and patterns from the original. This was mounted onto some pretty paper which had been distressed. 

And the finished card

Thank you for your visit
