Blended Bloom

Morning all.
Looks like another fine day here, just a little bit of cloud but could get a litt windy and wet later in the week as we get the remnants of a tropical storm, they think!

I've just come across a new challenge thanks to a few teamies over at ATSM, over at STAMPlorations.
This is a bi weekly challenge and this time its a sketch and here is my take.

I've used a recent purchase from my friends SU party that was just crying out to be coloured, 'Blended Bloom' I've be looking for a large flower to use with my W/C and Copics for some time. This time I used my Copics with matching squares of card to complete the sketch.

I did start this on Monday but for one reason or another I didn't finish so I had an eye on the Colour Me challenge but that's finished but they are very summery colours and the blousey bloom is just reminiscent of summer gardens, I think it might be a peony of some kind.  I doodled a border around the white square to frame the bloom and popped the front panel up on pads. To complete I added a few glossy black dots, made by colouring the base of some dried blobs of glossy accents I dried on a sheet of plastic then popped off when dry. I've seen lots of this style in blogland but never seen any in the shops. The hello is die cut from a Spellbiders Celebration 2 set.

I shall also enter the following challenges:-
Creative Inspirations - Here comes Summer
Love Rubberstamps - Anything Goes option of stripes
Inkspirational - Use Markers or Pencils

Don't forget there is still time to enter the latest challenge at Fantasy Stampers - Buttons and Bows
Not fantasy just plain old fashioned stamping required.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon. :)
