Teachers Cards

Youngest boy made cards this weekend for his teachers:


He drew his outline on silk with silver gutta, painted to his own taste, experimented a bit with salt, ironed, washed, ironed and then mum made them up into cards, It only took an hour or so and he has something really nice to give the teachers with our gifts that he can proudly say he made by himself:





If you don't have access to silk paints, I think you could use photographs or drawings just as well. 
We made it to the pub this weekend - will show you tomorrow. xxx
