MFT Jersey

This card sort of evolved all on its own, I wanted to make a jersey for my cousin and I knew the colours I wanted but finding a background to match the very bright green was impossible so  I made my own. I'm pleased with how it ended up but I think if I had my time over I would change a few

I cut the jersey twice once in real red and once in white and coloured the green with my copics and pieced it all together. I wanted the jersey to be the main element on the card and the background was supposed to be just that but it did end up slightly more prominent than I wanted. I tried placing the circles randomly but that just isn't me so I devised a pattern and stuck to that, once the other elements were adhered it isn't as easy to see the pattern anyway and it looks more random.
