A few online/SCS friends and I gave ourselves a challenge. One of the gals picked the color scheme (Buckaroo Blue, Cranberry Crisp, and Close to Cocoa), and we collectively opted for Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday #27 sketch, since at least a couple of us are vying for those Verve Visual stamps Julee is giving away on Monday. The deadline for Julee's sketch challenge is tomorrow evening [that's Sunday, 8 pm] if you want to get in on it!
I watercolored the flowers with reinkers and an aqua painter before adding the white dot accents on the leaves with a white gel pen. The small flowers in the center of the larger flowers have a row of brown dots on each petal. The stamp is designed so that the row of dots will show through to whatever background color you're stamping on, in this case white. I just chose to fill them in with brown instead. I also pulled every other leaf forward for some extra dimension.
[Update: Forgive my bad manners.... If you'd like to play along, please do! The SCS keyword to use is ULAS, for "Up Late and Stamping." I'd love to see you there!]
