It is spring holidays here and the children in my school holiday program are busy with all sorts of art and craft activities. The idea for these cards came when I looked at all the brightly coloured flower and bug stickers that I had. I wanted them to stand out so they needed a plain neutral background rather than a coloured or patterned one. The effect was striking.
The stickers themselves were three dimensional - there were things sticking out, some were made from foam or wood and the butterflies were from wire and fabric. In real life the cards were quite lovely. The problem I had was what to use to write on it. I had intended to use gold or silver pen - but I had forgotten to bring them. So I searched through my drawers and the only thing that would stand out against the black was the liquid paper pen. The effect was striking indeed.
