While I really love making Christmas cards, it was rather nice to take a break and make a birthday card yesterday for a friend with a birthday next week. This is NOT the card I made:
Well, I did make this card, but back in September at a card store in Vancouver when we were out there. It's okay, but not really me. On my own, I wouldn't choose green and brown for my flower colours. (Aren't brown flowers dead?) I got to colour the two background flowers, but not the popped-up one, and I like to think I might have shaded it a little better than it is. But maybe that's just me. ☺ It was fun to try Copics for the first time, but there's only so much shading you can do with 2 browns and 2 greens, especially when they forget to give you the lighter green until after you've finished colouring.
Anyway... I liked the general design and wanted to try it again with my own slant. Here's what resulted:
In my head, it was done in mauves with a different flower, but it ended up in pink and black with the lily image instead. Funny how that happens. Instead of Copics, which I don't have, I watercoloured the main lily with the distress ink.
