Birthday Greeting

For Yogi's bookmark that I featured in my last post, I had used coloured inks and watercolour pencils. I have been having so much fun with the inks that I decided to make another piece of art. This is for a birthday greeting of a close family friend.

Okay, so I had this squarish artist paper, which I didn't want to fold either vertically or horizontally. So I decided to fold it in a triangular shape. Some measurements were needed...

Then I started with the yellow ink and some soothing music to keep me company. I have to say it's pretty tricky to carry over one line on three faces of a prism-shaped object. But I managed somehow.

And here's a three-way view of the card...

...with the message written inside.

Couldn't resist taking a macro shot of the flower. :)
