Sketch, Color, Flower Challenge - a Little Multi Tasking

Happy Wednesday!  Have you ever had one of those weeks where you had to SUPER Multi Task?  Well, this is one of those weeks, still lots to get done!  Today, I've combined a sketch, color and flower challenge, you gotta love when the challenges all seem to work together!  I finished my piece last night,, but left it on my desk, as I had wanted to soften the White Gel Pen, so glad I did!
So what challenges did I use?  I wanted to incorporate the Flower Challenge from Paper Bag Studios, lucky for me I have this beautiful collage image that has a flower.  The images is stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, I added color using an Ink Blending Tool and Distress Inks.  After cutting the image with Spellbinders Dies, I used the Spritz N Flick Technique, and added some doodles with a White Gel Pen.  To soften the White Pen a bit, I used an H20 Brush. 

Inspired by this weeks MTSC83 Sketch, and the JUGS42 Color Challenge (Orange, Navy, Cream, Green)

Details:
Stamps - Paper Bag Studios
Ink - Black Archival, Distress Inks Wild Honey, Crushed Olive, Stormy Sky
Card Stock - Pumpkin, Black, Vanilla, Olive
Other - Spellbinders Dies, Spritz Bottle, Spiral Punch, Texture Fades Folder, Circle Punch, Cutter Kit, Ink Blending Tool, White Gel Pen, Craft Sheet

Such a great card, Lisa! I do not remember seeing that stamp before. Maybe it's because of the circles you've used. So pretty!
