You've seen the 15 minute version of this card.
My dear friend Chris' birthday deserved a bit more.
The background is paper inked by wiping up my desk.
At first I ungrouped everything, turned the circle into an oval and spaced the tulips around the oval.
On the mat.
The look was too symmetrical for my taste, so I manipulated the tulips to look more hand drawn.
Metallic threat is woven through the outer cuts and a sequin added.
The little corner tulips were gold, colored with alcohol ink.
( I think they are bells, upside down!)
Yes, it took awhile to create this card, and how long does it take to make a friend?
There is so much you can do with what you have!
Happy Birthday Chris!
