TGIFC90 - Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome back! Today I'm back with the next sketch challenge for the TGIF Challenge Blog. We're at challenge #90!

I stamped rows of the plants from the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set using Mint Macaron, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay inks.

OSAT Blog Hop - No Rules New Year

Since some of the images are so small, it doesn't take very much ink to color them. I love the different color variations that watercolor gives though. The back 4 images were stamped onto a panel of Shimmery White Cardstock to add more depth. The card base is Mint Macaron and the layer for the flower panel is Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock.
