4 of WTF: Chrysanthemum Cabochons

 Hi Everyone!

Here’s the artwork for my tarot card. It’s layers of fabric, some embroidery and the ever present chrysanthemum cabochons.

This is basically the final piece, but I would like some input on the best way to get this from fabric art to useable digital document.

The piece is 9 inches x 15 inches, which is in proportion to the final size. I have a scanner and can scan it, but it would be scanned in 2 pieces and would need to be digitally “sewn” together. I also have a 12 MP digital camera, and could photograph it as well. I was wondering if anyone who has more experience with photo editing software than I do would be able to clean it up a bit in Photoshop or another software. I could probably do a little touching up myself, but am not that experienced in it and others would easily do a much better job than me.

Let me know what you think…

Thanks,

Danica

    I also love it and I plan to use similar fabric techniques on some of my cards. Thank you for doing the size calculations so my lazy ass doesn’t have to.

    Can you bring it someplace like Kinko’s that can scan larger artwork? I don’t know how fragile your piece is, but you could conceivably mail it to me, because I think I have access to an 11×17 scanner at my office. Although paying a local print shop to scan it would probably be cheaper than mailing it to me.

    (making a note to myself to see how big the scanner at work is)
