Illustration Friday - Total

This week's topic had me stumped, I had no idea what to draw ...but here is my take on the topic.

Total Commitment....shopping for an Engagement ring!

I made some of these postcards last night....a little experiment using scrapbook paper on card stock and some decorative paper napkins...I found these black/white napkins at the dollar store and they are quite sheer when you seperate the layers....add a little modge podge and a trim to size...Voila!

  1. Cute illustration and you're right, that is total committment (at least for some people). I love the postcard--are you going to send it to someone? I've always admired people who make pretty postcards and send notes on them.

  10. A completely beautiful drawing and postcard! The layers are very hazy - almost feeling like being lost in a wood late at night (if you know what I mean)...

  13. I envy your drawing skills. I know I have told you that before, but I do. That is a great take on "total". Ah, the ring, it means so much to some and nothing to others. I love the postcard, too, what a great idea!!!
