Default Strawberry Blonde Tap Label

It is a work in progress. Any suggestions. I'm defiantly gonna change the font. Something else is missing.

Not to be negative, but it sort of looks like she's sniffing her pit. (Is that why she's swooning???)

And I think you're right about the font - something more flowing would be better. The drawing quality is great!

A nice script type font would look good. Maybe if you had some strawberries as the background but faded out. Something like this.

I like the pic but think you need even more swirly font.

Swooning Strawberry Blonde,

and it needs to wrap around the circumference. [FONT is blackadder ITC]

Nice job tho, wish I was half this artistically inclined.

Very nice, I may use it if you don't mind. I like the oval bit. I'm not artistic at all, I just did a search on pin ups and found her.

Yeah the oval is just the sort of typical tap handle shape so I ran with it. I can send you the photoshop file with all the layers if you want it/have access to photoshop.

I liked the idea and worked on mine a bit. The changable labels on my homemade tap handles are 3x3 square, but I did like the oval idea, I just modified it a bit and dropped the swoon angle and found a good font.

LOL, I didn't notice that. Maybe she is out of deodorant.

I really like how you've done it now - they black really makes the white and pink POP!

Ya I kinda agree it looks like she is sniffing her pit... Seems a lil odd. But it does look nice though.
