Flower Doodle

Created this little flower doodle as a card today.  Always pleasing to do something nice and quick to create a unique card for someone.

I created this by drawing out the flowers, then going over it with my 0.3 Staedtler pigment liner. Then added colour with my Letraset Promarkers.  The lighter bits on the purple flower were done with a Pale Lavender Copic marker pen, which turned out to be really good at adding highlights to the petals even after I’d already coloured then in with my purple Promarker.

Expressions, emotions and people
