Stamp 'N Hop February Blog Hop - Colouring

Hi everyone,

Today I am taking part in the Stamp 'N Hop February blog hop and our theme for this hop is "colouring". I immediately thought of using the Accented Bloom stamp set as I've had this set for a while and not yet inked up the large stamp which is just begging to be coloured.

Accented Blooms Stampin' Up!
The next decision was what to colour with? There are so many choices - Stampin' Blends, marker pens, aqua painters..... But for my project today I decided to use watercolor pencils and a blender pen. Anyway here is my card:

Accented Blooms Stampin Uo

I stamped the image in Memento black ink and then coloured with the watercolour pencils and blended the colours with a blender pen.

I mounted the image onto a panel of patterned paper from the Brights family stack. The little green patterned border is die cut using a die from the Lily Pad dies.
