Merry & Bright Poinsettias

Hello everyone!! This is a quick post to share a recent card that I made.
I've been wanting to try my hand at drawing, especially drawing flowers. Recently, Marcella from Power Poppy announced a contest (that is closing in an hour now!!) where she encourages people to 'Color outside the lines', literally or figuratively! With some encouragement from her, I decided to take the plunge and draw a poinsettia flowers (technically leaves) and color it.

Here's what I made:


I hand drew a rough outline with pencil and colored it with copics and Chameleon marker. So this looks like no-line coloring as well. I remembered to click a pic only after I started to color it.


The sentiment is from Unity Stamps - Our Hearts To Yours stamp set.
Do let me know what you think.Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
