The design I made for the pen and ink prompt was actually inspired by yesterday's block printing. The floral pattern that I made with pen and ink yesterday turned out better than the carved stamp, and I enjoyed using the same process today. The final sketch started with an outline in pen that was then completely filled in with a brush pen. I took it over to my computer for a little cleaning and coloring, and then I put the finished flower in a seamless repeat.
