TSG72 With Sweet Peas

Today, over at the There She Goes blog is the weekly challenge and it's a sketch hosted by yours truly :D This week it's a sketch challenge with a twist to celebrate the There She Goes Birthday! To read up on all the details please click here.

I water coloured the sweet pea blossoms with my tombow markers and then took a green prisma pencil and drew a line that followed the stems to add some colour. I popped up the three biggest blossoms and to make the flowers look larger with more petals, I angled the popped up pieces a little so that they were not placed directly on the original image. This is a great little trick to adding more dimension to a floral image :D
