Some sunshine

Good morning bloggers....and my scheduled post.

today I am sharing my card for the LOTV Design Collective.

Now when I saw first saw this little cutie called Water Liliy from LOTV, she really did make me smile so I eventually got around to buying her.

I coloured the image with Spectrum Noirs, the papersd are from LOTV which I layered onto bazzill card and doodled the edges.  I added some flowers to finish.

Doodled flowers

 Hi folks, you know how I love my doodles, well I thought I would show you how I do those doodled flowers using my spectrum noir pens and a fine liner for my DT card for Spectrum Noir.

First of all I die my shapes in white card.

Next I colour the shapes in my chosen colours, it's really easy as you can match the image and papers.

Next the flowers...

I just keep adding colour to build up the colour and shading.

I have used deeper colours next.

Once you think you have the colour you want, you are going to add your doodles with your fine liner, now this doesn't have to be neat...actually doodles look better with some wobbles.

Finally you can add some pearls to the centres.

Here's the final result, I have added the flowers and heart shapes to the card. The image is called I gave you my Heart from the Gorjuss collection at Sugar Nellie.

For the flowers I used:
TN9, OR3, CR8, CR10

For the image I used:
