Feeling really sad this week as the current re-structure at work finally starts to kick in and lots of staff will be leaving in a week’s time. As this round of redundancies and retirements kick in, those of us who are left are wondering quite what the future holds. I fully expect more of us will go this summer.
In the normal run of things I make most of the leaving cards but there are just too many this time round. However I have made this one for a close colleague who actually started at the same time I did more years ago than I care to remember!! I did it in lilac as that is the colour of our absolutely disgusting uniform since we were outsourced – I hope she appreciates the joke lol. Inside it just says ‘but we will miss you lots’.
I love this digital image from Mo Manning (why oh why are there so few ‘ethnic’ images out there? A real gap in the market in my opinion – if I could draw I’d try to do some myself). I haven’t tried ethnic skin colouring before but followed this tutorial from Card Making Magic as I wasn’t sure where to start. It was really helpful and I’m quite pleased with the result given that I don’t do that much colouring. Words and background all done with Serif Craft Artist.
See you soon!!
