It's National Wedding Month, so the colours for this week's Spoonflower Limited Colour Palette contest were inspired by popular wedding colours; grey, cream, cucumber and peach (white and black were also allowed). Designs for the contest didn't have to be wedding themed, but I decided to create something based on hearts. I sketched ideas with patterned hearts and floral and leaf motifs before coming up with the design above. Although I started with pen line drawings for all of the shapes, I didn't want to have outlines for everything in the finished design so played around with changing the colours of the lines / filled in colour. I like the way the lighter colours of the flowers and leaves contrast against the darker grey background.
