I had a love/hate relationship while coloring my lady bug art, but we finally came to a compromise. I had too much of a heavy hand while coloring the black shell and heart spots so the detail in the line art was lost. However, I think the bolder shapes will reproduce better when I shrink it for the pendants my mom wants to make. Plus, I have the original ink illustration available as a unique digital stamp on Etsy. I hope paper crafters will be enticed to buy the Art Nouveau design for Valentine's Day - I'd love to see how other creative souls would add color.
Lady bug drawing is inked with black Sakura Pigma Micron Pens and colored with Prismacolor pencils onto ACEO cut Strathmore Smooth Bristol Paper.
