The first thing that came to mind when i thought of Germany was the Berlin Wall (why Black Forest Gateaux didn't i'll never know!)
The Berlin wall, what do i know about this well being honest not a lot, i know it divided East and West Germany and it was demolished and the Hoff was there, he gets about a bit doesn't he?!
When i thought of the wall before googling i thought of Graffiti and this is what my google image search was.
There are some amazing images and without doing any further German Googling i decided to recreate a relatively easy graffiti image into my card.
Then i used some other elements i saw to make the book page.
Initially i did a light grey water colour paint on the book page and postcard.
then i bought some cheap brush tip felt pens from ASDA (supermarket) i have bought quite a few promarkers but i was worried about ruining them using them over paint as i've done before.
i am really impressed with the colours and it doesn't matter if they get ruined.
