Personal Illustration – Christening card

At the end of November I was invited to a Christening and I wanted to make a unique card for the parents, but at first I struggled to come up with an idea that would make the card more personal. I looked at the invitation to check the details of the event and found that I was unfamiliar with the church where the Christening was taking place, so I looked it up online. I was pleased to discover that the front of the church was quite an unusual shape and decided that it would be a good illustration for the card. I had fun simplifying the shapes of the church and using unrealistic colours to create the design.
