I'm not sure if drawing flowers are my favourite images to do.  I know Remembrance Sunday is coming up.  So this is part of the reason I've drawn there but also I've had a thing about drawing them since I saw a large variety growing in my parents garden earlier this year.

The poppies were coloured with Copcs and then I added a little black polychromos for depth.  The buds and stems were done with ProMarkers and black polychromos.

I then ventured into doing a abstract background using Copics and a blender pen painting watercolours like distress inks (a trick learned from Alyce in her Markers 101 class).  Love the effect and I shall certainly try this again.

I didn't want to do a completely CAS card this time.  For some reason the poppies seemed to work really well with this design paper from Lemoncraft.

Mounted onto some black card, I've added some tiny strips of navy blue ribbon, a few black gems and then a woodchip love sentiment from Scrapienic.

Hope you love my inspiration
