Hand Drawn Cards - Yellow Tulips Sympathy

With Heartfelt Sympathy Card

This is one of my popularly viewed cards on splitcoast stampers. It has garnered over 2,500 unique views and several comments. This is card's image is hand drawn and colored using prismacolors and pen. I deckled the edges and used watercolor washout effect on the edges. The background is cuttlebug embossed and the sentiment is a clear saying sticker by DCWV. The arched effect on the tulip was a last minute improv because I drew several images on a sheet and they were too close together that the top of the tulips didn't have enough border space. To create that illusion, I used a circle container top and traced half of it and drew smaller arcs on the edges. That way, i was able to preserve the leaves and didn't have to cut them straight down. Hope i'm making sense. TFL!
