WW - Flowers w/ a Dark Twist Reminder


I wish I had thought to take a picture of this drawing my son made before he gave this  to his girlfriend for her birthday...thankfully he did with his phone and was able to email it to me.  Even though the picture is is blurry and out of focus, you can see why I wanted to use it for this week's Wicked Wednesday Flowers with a Dark Twist challenge.
Vinnie drew this with Sharpies and colored it with watercolors, then added shimmer and shine in all the right places with mixed media products.  This is one of those times that I should have remembered to print the picture on photo paper...not cardstock. I cropped it, and then used Copic outliners to define the rose. I decided on the lyrics from the Funeral for a Friend song from Elton John because my son was wearing his heart on his sleeve the day he drew this.
We'd love to have you join us in this week's challenge, which really is much easier than it sounds...but if you're looking for a little bit more inspiration to kick start your mojo, check out what my fellow teamies came up with HERE!
Thanks for stopping by, you're comments are always like a big, happy hug!
