A new challenge has started over at The Library and this time its The Hobbit, you can either be inspired by the book cover, title or the story.
I think the design of the cover is very naive and just a little bit dark, then again it is about a Hobbit. In light of that I decided to make an alternative cover trying to replicate the look with a fun twist...
Its The Hoppit. The background has been done using various dies as templates and spritzing with Glimmer Mist Just like the book I added in black pen lines but keeping it simple. I added a small border around the main image, coloured it green and added matching symbols from the book. The frog is from a very old Penny Black stamp set and he was just masked off then coloured with greens. The sentiment is computer generated and the font is called Requiem from DaFont.
I'm not completely happy with this card but I had fun making it and it was nice to use some very old stash.
