SaxGirl (eCard Portfolio) Fading

Fading

LOOK WHO'S ALIVE! How long has it been since I last uploaded anything..? Nearly 3 months?! Okay...^^;

Anyway. This is my entry for CrimzonN3k0 z's challenge:) The lyrics on the card are from the song 'Frozen' by Within Temptation. This part of the lyrics stands out to me because it conveys so much emotion - and I thought it fit perfectly with this particular image.

I found this GORGEOUS scan on MiniTokyo and couldn't let it go:3 I played around a lot with colour settings, saturation, vibrance, etc. Added a gradient and a starry texture, and then the text. There is a lot of symbolism in this card, especially in terms of light and dark, good and bad, ... That's why I used such contrasting colours and also big contrast between dark and light in it. But I suppose it should become clear just by looking at the card:3

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