Bodacious Plaid Bouquette

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 282 - Blushing Riding Expresso. I had to use some substitutes until my order comes today or tomorrow, grrr. My layout is from Monday's TECHNO STAMPERS SKETCH CHALLENGE # 133. I also had to do another one of Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 284 - Plaid Silhouettes as this is just the kewlest one for these type of stamps. I hate not getting a good impression on a solid image and typically use my copics to fill in where the impression is lacking so this TLC was appealing to my "lack" of crafty abilities and I love the way this flower and these leaves turned out. I inked my flower image with pink pirouette then tapped the edges of riding hood red in one direction and choc chip from another. I did the same with the leaves using certainly celery and old olive. I added some dessert from todays color challenge - something new to me is my brand new Fiskars border punch. I love it. It is simular to one I wanted from somewhere else but a lot easier to get my hands on. LOL.

That kind of layout is common but the flower makes it unique. The color and design of the flower is very artistic. It is so gorgeous.
