The image on this card was a big experiment for me and it took most of the day to make this card .
I am not very good at drawing especially drawing detail on a small scale.
So I drew this image on a much larger scale than used on this card. The original drawing almost filled an  A4 sheet of paper.
Once I had finished scribbling,  I scanned the image into my PC and then reduced the image down to a quarter of it's original size. I  printed it off and coloured the image using Copic markers.

The next image was created a little differently.
Instead of drawing the whole image as you see here.  I drew the single rose. On another section of my A3 sketch paper, (nowhere near the single bloom) I drew the bunch of rose buds.
Then I drew a single leaf followed by the little bunch of blue flowers and the Rose hips.
None of the sketches were connected as they are here.

I took a sheet of tracing paper and a fine black pen and began tracing off the rose, then I moved the tracing paper over to the next image and traced over the leaf  placing  several leaves around the rose.   I kept moving the tracing paper over the drawings,  and tracing off  the different pieces until I had an arrangement I quite liked.  The tracing paper was then put into the scanner and then printed off  the final image onto  silky, smooth, thin card using a laser printer.  I chose the laser printer so I don't get any ink smudges when I colour the images.
 I have decided to share my rough drawings after a request on FB.  So if you like the images,  you can print them off , colour them and use the images for your own personal use.
 Click on a picture,  to get larger image then right click on the image and save to your computer. Then you ll be able to  print it off and resize as much as you like.
