Birthday Card for a Painter

Hi everyone and welcome back. Today I'm sharing the card I made for my son for his birthday.
He has a business 3D printing D&D models and then he paints them by hand. It started as a hobby, but he's so good that he's had several orders (see bottom of post).  Thinking about all the painting he does, I thought this card would be fun for him.

This was the perfect card to use up a bunch of scraps too.  😀
The Painter's Palette is a die from Spellbinders.

On the inside I used the Happy Birthday w/Shadow die, from Kat Scrappiness, to cut out the greeting.  The paint splatters were cut out using a file from Silhouette.

I made this into a 5" x 7" card which fits perfectly into an A7 envelope.
And that was that for my card. My son loved it, so mission accomplished.

  I thought I would include a few pics showing off his painting.  The details are amazing on such tiny little models.  Of course he does larger ones too, but these little ones leave me in awe, especially when he paints entire armies of them. 

These little guys are only 1.5" tall and he managed to paint the pupils in the eyes!

An army in progress ...

This is one of the larger models.  This one is about 5.5" tall.  Isn't the painting amazing?

Look at the detail just on the base.  All painted by hand and then he added the little grass tuffets to make it even more realistic.  I guess he gets his painting skills from hubby, because I can't paint worth diddly!😀

Well folks that is it from me for today.
I'll be back soon to share a few more projects with you.
