Rainbow Keyboard Card

Rainbow keyboard Card
I was asked to make a card for a 12 year old boy who plays the piano, mindful of his age, I didn’t want to do anything run of the mill.  I hoped to find a wavy keyboard on Google but no luck, so in the end I had to plump for a dead plain black and white clip art keyboard.

Then I had an “Ulrika Moment” – I found a rainbow background and with a bit of jiggery pokery on Publisher, superimposed the keyboard on top ….. I was so chuffed with the result.

I cut out another set of black keys and used foam sticky pads to hold them in place. Finally I added a good coat of Anita’s 3D Clear Gloss to each key as a finishing touch. Done and dusted!
