"Bike Love"... A Handmade Card

My mind is exploding with ideas now! I used my bike outline from my last painting and tried a new idea I had been thinking about for quite awhile. Kind of funny because it was what I was going to try doing with my bike design in the first place but I'm so used to painting I just didn't have the guts to attempt it, which is crazy. There are so many new things to try and who cares if it doesn't turn out, at least you learn something right? I love colors, textures, simplicity and complexity all at the same time. I can't choose what I like better... graphic design or fine art so I did a combo of both and was pretty happy with the result. The above is the front of the card but the back side is also designed with the bike on the right and the background images wrapping around. I can't wait to start designing more images for cards and prints using this style.
