Lucky cards

So, I really wanted to give it a go with this method. Bare in mind that I am a complete amateur when it comes to design; I have no experience on this field, and almost zero knowledge of Adobe Illustrator. Yet. I was able to create something I really liked. I wanted to sketch something with a positive feeling, so I decided to sketch things that are considered to bring luck as well as things that, upon seeing them, make you wish something. 

This is the original

sketch:

Although Selley proposes that we use the blob brush tool and draw on top of the sketches, I did not go ahead with that, because my mouse is pretty much unmanageable. So, I used livetrace instead. I'll try the other method when I get a tablet. 

Shelley's instructions were very clear and I was able to produce many color schemes:

(There are so many more color patterns on my artboard!)

Thanks again, Shelley, I really enjoyed it!

And the end result is this:

I did not pay much attention to the fonts or the allignment of the rectangles, due to my lousy mouse!
