Color Your Bleeding Heart Flower Drawing
Complete your bleeding heart flower outline with a black pen, then erase the pencil lines.
To make your bleeding heart flower outline as realistic as possible, use brown for the stem and green for the leaves. Color the flower petals dark pink with light pink on the inside. Add a blue background to your cartoon bleeding heart flower, or leave the background white so the flowers stand out.
