Flowers of the Month: Larkspur

Hello Friends,

We are celebrating Larkspur this month here at Lila Grey Stamps.   This is a flower that I'm not familiar off to Google image.  I was pleasantly surprised when my screen filled with a beautiful purple!!

I chose a series of violet markers to create the plum-like color.   I used V01, V04, V05, V06 and V09. These can be tricky to shade.  To help with the blending I used V01 to help soak the paper with alcohol with paper to keep the ink moving.  

I cropped the image off center to give the appearance of a whole field of flowers rather than just a single few.

I hope you enjoy this card.  I love the purple.  Thanks for stopping by

Copics used:
Purple: V01, V04, V05, V06, V09
Olive" YG67, YG61
Yellow: Y15, E13
