Classic Pooh Birthday Card

Hello how are you today? I haven’t been crafting for a while as I’ve had two unexpected operations this year. I have a biopsy next week, and I hope that will be it for a while. Today I am sharing a Classic Pooh card. I love E.H.Shepards original drawings in the Pooh books and these stamps have been inspired by his wonderful art work. 

I water coloured the map and used a uni pin fine line pen to add detail.The map is based on Ashdown Forest where all of  the Pooh stories were set.  I also water coloured and fussy cut Pooh, and added some glossy accents to his beloved honey flowing out of  the honey pot which he is lovingly clinging on to.I also managed to use up some of my large pile of pretty patterned papers as a mount 😁

I will finish with this photo taken in the Ashdown Forest some years ago, I am looking towards Gills Lap known as “The Enchanted Place “ in the Pooh books. 

Thank you so much for visiting, wishing you sunny & happy days xx
