For this card, I stamped the image in a very light colored Memento ink and then colored it. I kept the stamp in front of me while I worked to reinforce where the lines on the stamp were as they tended to disappear with the light colored ink. I then used a fine line black pen to draw in the petals. I fussy cut the flower and mounted it on Penny Black's diecut "Interlocking, which was then placed over dotted patterned paper. The sentiment is Penny Black's creative die "Love Expressions".

This is another venture into coloring with Copics and using a Penny Black diecut "Leaves" instead of the leaves that are included in the stamp. A little patterned paper, and a little stitching and my latest favorite thing enamel brads. I went to Michael's for enamel brads over the weekend and my bill was $50.00!! How does that happen?

Last, and not least, is my watercolored version. I stamped the image with Distress ink, Brown Corduroy and used my Inktense colored pencils to watercolor the image. The brown from the Distress ink blended a bit with my pink pencil, so I ended up with my own custom color!! I highlighted the petals by going over the lines with the Inktense pencil. Once again, I added a diecut from "Leaves" and a sentiment from " Wishes".
So there you have it! Glad I didn't back down from the challenge.
Thanks for stopping by on this moody Monday! Why not take the challenge and pick up that stamp that has been neglected for awhile and see what happens!!
