Bright Dots and Wavy Lines - Four Cards

When a friend saw my first "bright dots and wavy lines" drawing, she said it would make a good card, and she was right! Click here for the first drawing, and here for another more complex version.

For these cards, I used PowerPoint to print a page with varying sizes of circles up to 1/2". The wavy lines are freehand. The frames (middle layer) and ribbons ( 3/8" grosgrain knot or 1/4" silk bow) are colored with the same Copic marker colors as the circles. I used my Copic black multiliner (brush medium) along the edges of the middle layer. The sentiments "Thinking of you" are computer-printed using "Lucida Calligraphy" font.

I made these cards in four different color combinations (two at top of post, the other two below) for Operation Write Home - "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." (002)
  • Copic marker colors used: Top left B24, Y15, YR04, R24, G14; Top right V12, G21, B41, Y21, R32;
    Bottom left BG72,75, E11,33; Bottom right Y11, G40, YR00, RV10, B000 .
  • Paper: Neenah for dot and frame layers, on an A2 card base (4.25 x 5.5" when folded)
