Billie and Monika challenge....Thinking of you

Monday July 17, 2017
Well it's another challenge for Billie and Monika of Creative with Monika  It's a challenge we just do between ourselves.
We've been doing this for a few months.. This will be our last one till end of summer. Monika has kids out of school and it's just a busy time for her.. I really look forward to the challenge. She is very inspirational. I am just using stamps.. no designer paper and we challenge each other to different themes. I chose for two months and she chooses for two months .. so on and so on.. 
This is my month to chose so I chose flowers.. but they need to be in Purple, Orange and Yellow.. of course it's ok for the leaves to be green.. These are a few of my favorite colors..
I used Simon Says stamps from 3 different sets. I stamped and masked. I used Ranger inks, copics and colored pencils. ( I need to remember this purple flower and try again.. I love the way it came out) I used white gel pen to give some added highlights.
I watch the Daily Marker videos and she talks about the sweet spot on the flowers.. leaving the white areas.. Also adding some brown spots to leaves.. leaves have brown spots.. at lease mine do..
I hope you enjoy and I hope you head over to Monika's blog and see what she created.. I know you will love it.
