Further to the last post, I have been working away on my gifts for my friends’ wedding. I have
procrastinated a lot not made great progress. So far I have a 1/4 finished blanket and a few ideas for the card. This is what I want to write about today. I’ve had a few ideas of card designs and I need some opinions on them! The couple are very into music and vintage design (in particular, that of the 1960s). So these are the ideas I have had for images to put on the card. Both are drawn using Stabilo point 88 fineliners.
Idea 1 is a picture of the couple. I’ve done it in green here but really it could be any colour.
The other option was a more abstract psychedelic image with just the date of the wedding and their names. My main issue with this is does it look more like a doodle than a wedding gift/card?
This is unfinished but you get the picture (boom boom!).
If either of these images were usable I’d mount them on a white card.
HELP! I’ve spent so long looking at these drawings that I can’t tell if they are usable or not. My bf is far too polite to say anything is wrong with them so I need some honest opinions, are either usable or should I quit this and buy a card. I can’t spend too much more time on the card as the blanket is so far from finished!
