On March 14th, I posted the card below, which I titled "Te Amo," featuring an original vintage style girl that I drew.
Borqna, my blogging friend from Bulgaria, really liked it and asked if she could reproduce it. I e-mailed her a jpeg of the line drawing and challenged her to use it in a design of her own. My main request was that she not use it for any type of commercial use and with the understanding that I maintained full copyrights. I wanted to inspire her, not have her imitate me. She agreed. Today, I was happily surprised to hear that she completed her card and posted it on her blog, Borqna. This is her card:
I believe she did an outstanding job! I'm especially impressed that she created an original design which reflects her own feelings. The soft colors, with the textures of lace and the beautiful butterfly give the card a much more feminine feel. She also wrote a very creative narrative, which I recommend that you read, since she wrote it in both Bulgarian and English. You are cordially invited to follow my blog and leave a comment. Let me know if you want to participate in my challenge. Blessings!
