Purple Doodled Flower Card

This card measures 5.5ins x 5.5ins and is made using a hand cut blank in a black coloured card and all the doodling is mine, drawn free hand and then coloured in.

This card measures 5.5ins x 5.5ins and is a hand cut blank made using white linen effect card.

Flushed with the success of my canvas paintings, I wondered if I could create something similar to put on a card(s) using Promarker and other pens.
I started by cutting out a small 4ins x 4ins “canvas” and then just went for it. Like I did when I was painting, my large canvas, I just couldn’t help going over the rough flower shapes after only drawing a few with a black fine liner pen to see if I was going along the right line …. and if it would look like the idea in my head …. it did!
From then on I did a little at a time, doing a couple of basic flowers and leaves and then doodling over them , building the design up  until all the spaces were more or less filled in.
When it was finally finished I mat and layer the design on black card …. after which I decided to play some more ….. praying that I wasn’t going to ruin something that I was already really happy with.  I added a little Rangers Glossy Accents to the design first in small blobs to add texture and dimension and then, while it was still wet ……(this is when I closed my eyes)  ….. I went the whole hog and sprinkled it all over with a light dusting of Hunkydory Angel Whispers …….

Phew ….. as you can see, it turned out beautifully, if I say so myself, I am so chuffed! In the right light the design so sooooooo subtly twinkly, the photos just don't do it justice.
