Showcases – Mama’s 71st Birthday card

My mum turned 71 last week. Wow! And she looks amazing for her age. I wonder if I’ll look as good as her when I turn 71? Hmmm….Anyway, I wanted to make some flower cards for her and I thought I’d experiment with acrylic painting (the dry brush technique).  My first attempt was this cherry blossom but I thought the colours were too dark for my mum. I didn’t mind it but I thought mum would prefer a lighter version. So I made another crude attempt and I came up with a pastel version (pink background) of a generic looking flower. This second one was the one I sent her. I think she likes it….
