Mallard Commissioned birthday card

I was asked by a wonderful twitter friend, Cameron Lawton, to make a card for her husbands upcoming birthday. The brief was that he likes steam trains. So what better iconic image to use than the classic Mallard.

The image is from La Pashe and drawn by the very talented Jim Harker and I have coloured it with a mixture of pro & flex markers.

The trellis work on the gold mirri was made using a hougie board.

Now, this isn't a photo of the final card - like an idiot, I deleted the wrong one. All that was added to the final card was the steam clouds coming out of the funnel.
