I like the ribbons but not much else about this. It's pale because it's done with the gel pens.
And here's where I am on the Sweetpeas - I just can't seem to like this once I put in a background. Maybe I should go back to leaving the bg white...
Here are the stages I've gone through and the different outcomes:
So - which one is the best? Without bg, with a lighter green bg and darker flowers, with darker bg and lighter flowers? I really can't tell at this point - I'm wondering why I can't seem to get this - it's not that hard - a simple little pretty flower and something behind it to set it off - not hard, right?
