Summer Flower

Aloha dear ones,

This is a card for the current StampTV MIUM Challenge to use "a single flower" (gulp). Boy, restrictions give me hives lol.

I stamped the flower onto watercolor paper, then used watercolor pencils and lots of wet on wet to paint the flower and background. Then using a black marker I added all the little doodles. I can't get my mind wrapped around this camera so you can't see the polka dot embossing on the blue layer. Will keep trying to figure settings out. Even autofocus is challenging for me!

The clear dots are Crystal Lacquer. Diamond Stickles is on top of the sequins in the middle of the flower.

Stamp Set: "True Love" by Gina K. Designs (an oldie but goodie)
Inks: Derwent Watercolor Pencils; Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Multiliner 0.8 Black (doodles); Signo White Gel Pen (highlights on flower and leaves)
Cardstock: GKD white; AC Blue & Yellow
Embossing Folder "Quik Cutz/Lifestyle Crafts" Polka Dots
Miscellaneous Sequins
3D Crystal Lacquer
Ranger "Diamond" Stickles
Corner Rounder
Dries Clear, Fun Foam, Scor Tape, Tape Runner
