Is it time for autumn yet?
The hot summer has certainly come to an end, and so did the adventures it has brought. Before I get busy again, I'd like to begin the new month with a new Fadengrafik Challenge, and as we have a "Birthday" theme for September, I have created this simple male birthday card.
The card iteslf may remind you of a very similar design I've created a couple of years ago for a friend, and to be perfectly honest I've created it for my exhibition a while ago.
However, as I needed simple flat cards back then, I decided not to add any 3D details on my project. Also, as I had no particular recipient in mind I thought it would be better to leave the card as it is and maybe add a name/age/sentiment later if needed. And I guess due to this lack of an additional *something* the card always looked somewhat unfinished to me.
Recently, I finally decided to paint the stitched motif with coloured pencils. The addition of colour certainly makes the whole thing look better, but I still might want to go for a little note on the empty space once the card is ready for delivery.
