Yellow Swirl on White or Brown

This little flower design comes from one of my doodles a year or so ago. Before opening my shop on Etsy, I had a hard time finding my own style. It took me some time to finally learn that I love drawing curve lines, something whimsical and swirly like this. I usually let my mind blank first when I put the tip of pencil on paper. Then just let the lines flow. Sometimes it ends up in something nonsense and no good for design. Sometimes the lines turn out very nice and I begin to think of next steps.

There are some times too that the original sketches in pencil which look really cool at first turn out very lame in final production. It depends...

As for this swirly flower, I printed the illustration on white paper first. It looked nice just as I expected. Then I wondered how it would look on brown paper, so I tried. Some says the one on white pops out more than the one on brown.

As the creator, I have to say I like them both. What do you think? Do you like this design on white or brown?
