Happy Belated Birthday Harvest-chan! :)
I wanted to make something for your birthday since you're such a dear friend and I needed to dedicate something to you. Also not to mention you made that beautiful Noah picture for me, which I still love with all my heart. ^_^ I know you love Harvest Moon, so I decided to find an HM image for a card. Well I wanted to make a card with Ann on it, but I honestly could not find really any good images of her^^;; But I remember this Popuri picture I uploaded onto E-shuushuu a few weeks back and thought it would be perfect. The words are simple, but the image seems to go a long with it. xD I hope God does bless each and every day of your life. Continue to be your sweet and loving self, and keep up the great work on your artwork! It's fun to see each new picture you present to us on here and to see how you have improved and also to just feel your love of art. Your hardwork and dedication to your artwork really shines through^^ So best of luck my friend and of course, god bless! *hugs* Happy Birthday again, hope you had a great one~
Anyway, first of all THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH SOLENM SERPENT FOR HELPING ME WITH THE TEXT!!! I have been trying to achieve text like this for awhile now, but all the tutorials on GIMP are confusing as heck. But Miss Solenm really showed me the way on to create a more creative design with my text. :) I'm really happy with how it came out and it's amazing to look at this card and see that kind of text....I'm like, "did I make that kind of text?" So yes I'm very happy^^ Thank you again my friend! Anyway, I used 4 textures this time, to bring some more pinkish/purple/red colors to the image. All the textures are from pixiv, so if you can't access the textures, please tell me if you would like to see what I used. I hope the links work okay though. *crosses fingers* Then added some swirl and bokeh brushes around the image....and that's about it. :) I hope it came out well!
Thank you all very much for supporting my card! Take care~
