Curved Window Card

I fancied having a crack at making a curved window card. I didn't do a fancy shaped window, or even frame it, I just thought I'd keep it straight for simplicity....maybe another time be a bit more adventurous.

I did have to reinforce the inside with some thick plastic, which cannot be seen with ordinary viewing of the card, but can be seen here because of the angle of the photos. I could of covered them in paper but then that would have blocked out the light.

I made the cherub from air drying clay in a silicone mould. Sentiments created in Photoshop, printed onto textured watercolour paper. The same for the photograph inset into the clock, but on ordinary paper. I butchered up some silk flowers for the card. I did make my own, but they are on the 'pillow shaped' envelope, which I will photograph tomorrow.

I think thats about all I can tell you about this card really, the photographs speak for themselves. The 'technical' bit was creating the envelope, designed so it curves'll see it tomorrow...I hope.

Thank you for looking.
