It’s been a busy week with the launch of my Kickstarter for the Flora and Fauna Collection, but that doesn’t mean I can slow down on my other projects or blog updates. So, of course, I’ve got something new for this week.
Recently I was inspired by a prompt from a daily Spoonflower Contest – pencil drawing. I pretty much start everything with pencil drawing, so it’s not an unfamiliar prompt. I wanted to do something cute, and I had been drinking tea and thinking about the my Mom’s cool tea cup collection when inspiration struck.
I started with this sketch, which you may remember from my Instagram if you follow it. If not I hope you start! I post lots of previews and process pictures in real-time there.
From these initial sketches, I lightboxed clean drawings onto a set of watercolor cards. I picked these cards up at Michael’s when they were on sale, figuring I could use them to create birthday and holiday cards.
