I'm back again. I have been so busy this week, and have also been spending a lot of time playing with my sketch book. I'm coming up with lots of little sketches for fun. But I could not resist playing a little with these new Magnolias. I wanted to keep everything very simple. The roses are so pretty that they don't need any help to stand out in this card. All images are stamped on water color paper and colored using re-inkers. The sentiment is from Stampin Up Happy Harmony and it suits the simple beauty of these images.
The second card is a 4 x 4 . It is a simple design that I was playing with. For myself, I am personally used to doing more realistic drawings. Often what I will do for practice is draw the image realistically and then start removing lines and simplifying other lines. One of the things that makes a drawing cartoon like is the human elements that we can put in. It is a case of practice will eventually make perfect. The image lines are a little fatter than I would have liked, but sadly I grabbed the pen that was a size larger than what I wanted and didn't notice till the first stroke was down.
