CAS(E) this Sketch #245

It's time for a retro sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!
Here's Sketch #245 which was Sketch #88 from me in August 2014.

Here's my updated take on the sketch using the Mondo Hydrangea.

The Mondo Hydrangea and extra flowers were stamped with purple Distress ink
on watercolor card stock. Using a waterbrush, I colored in all the flowers with
blue and purple Distress inks and let them dry.

The stamen portion of the flowers and the stems were colored in with Copic
markers. After all the images were dry, I re-stamped the image again (leaving
the stamps it in the Misti helped!) with purple Distress ink, then cut them out 
and adhered them to the card. The stamped sentiment finished off the card.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team interpreted this
retro sketch, and join us if you can! Link up your card(s) by Thursday, Nov 2nd
and as the weekly winner, you'll be invited to guest with us on a future challenge!
