I was given this fab image Beetle by Reece’s Scrap Pieces to work with and I decided to make it into a flower doodled car. I had already decided I wanted to use the main colours of green & purple and the card sort of grew from there really. Using the sketch from Mojo Monday I selected 2 papers that I wanted to put together. I really liked the different colours in the floral paper and added the swirled green to link in the car better.
The image was coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I drew the large flowers on first then coloured in around them. I used a fine nib to doodle the smaller flowers and add definition to the larger ones. I then added lots of gems and glitter domes to make it really sparkle.
I mounted the image on a scrap of dark purple card and added the ribbon. The flower is from a strip that I bought when I first started making cards in 2002 so it is proper vintage! The centre of the flower is pale blue so I have covered it with a purple glitter brad and this provided me with a great way of attaching it to the card, win win J
