Prior to starting this card, I wanted a black and white background and decided to paint splatter on a white cardstock card front first. I "forced" some splatters by directly painting larger shapes. Now the background was ready for the colorful flowers! I purposely affixed a couple flowers off the edge of the card and cut away the excess for visual interest.
Here is my painting session showing all my silly flowers and leaves and the doodling that really brings out the final shapes. I worked with Canson watercolor paper and Sakura Koi watercolors.
