SaxGirl (eCard Portfolio) Daylight Lucidity

Daylight Lucidity

'Copycat - oh no!' challenge by sweetdevil. I chose to imitate: Angel Zakuro!

Really, I couldn't just pick one card from Kelsey's gallery! I am always inspired by each and every card she makes<3 So I took some general things that always come back in her work:

- Gradients
- Textures
- WARM colours
- Beautiful and touching scans (this looks like an image she could have used)
- A 'textbox' thingy (the white bar)
- Pretty fonts, usually two fonts in two different sizes
- Inspirational quotes (sometimes from songs, which I do as well)

And here are some examples from her amazing gallery I was particularly inspired by:
'Chained and drowning'. Specific aspects from this I used in my own card: the position of the character - not in the center - plus drop shadow on text.
'I will be yours'. Aspects used here: bokeh texture, font (Scriptina Pro from DaFont.com).
'Castles in the sky'. Aspects used here: the bar.
'Our secret', 'Speechless' (and most of the entire gallery). Aspects used here: warm colours.

I hope you like it Kelsey - and I definitely hope this card is you-worthy!:3 I really loved making this card, it was nice to try some different stuff, especially in this way.

Feedback, as always, is VERY much appreciated! <333
