Winter baby by bgerr Winter baby by bgerr
I am an auntie! My sister has given birth to a lovely baby boy, for whom she asked me to make the birth announcement card. We decided to keep the card itself very simple and just make a beautiful illustration for the front of the card, and put the details on the back of the card.

I saw some great illustrations in polymer clay recently and decided on clay as my medium for this. I made all the objects in loose bits and baked them separately and then glued them on a plexiglass plate. I painted the blue of the sky and the green hills on a piece of paper and glued that to the back of the plate.

I'm so happy that all is well and i't was an honour and a pleasure to have made this :-).
