Graffiti Doodling

Yesterday I mentioned the cards I had done that were inspired by graffiti. I had posted one for St.Patricks Day earlier this year, but here are a couple more. These were not done with Copic markers, but rather watercolor, my first love for coloring! Copics are my new second love, but I have been watercoloring for years and years.

The writing was drawn, not written, which tells those you that don't like your own writing that you can just draw the lettering. Another option is to print it on the computer in a font you like and then copy that . Where there is a will, there is a way!
Here again, I like to use an illustration, or in this example, a stamped image as part of the composition.

My philosophy on doing a card that looks complete is that it should have three things:
1. background
2. the center of interest or stamped image
3. Some type of embellishment

These are easy to see in these fun to make cards!
