90th Birthday


Commission for a 90th birthday.
I wanted to keep this simple and as it is for a gentleman, NO ribbon and No flowers  - but I did manage to find room for a tassel :-)

I made this BP to represent the regimental tie which is broad stripes of navy and silver. I was given photo's of the regimental badge and flags which I scanned and after some digital do-dah-ing made them usable for embellishments.

The badge is two layers - the first layer is printed directly on top of the stripes and the shaped 2nd layer fixed with silicone

I added a number 90 to the flags and matted it onto gold mirri card - this is secured with foam pads.

The scroll is made from some lovely parchment, the type used for certificates.
