Bloom and Grow

This card was created as a result of two challenges -- a sketch challenge and a color challenge. I just love this set of stamps so I had a lot of fun putting the card together. The image on the card is not as crisp as it would have been if it had simply been stamped. Instead I used a technique called Copic Expressions from Technique Junkies which uses Copic markers and alcohol to create a watercolor look. The side panel is grungepaper which has been colored with Pan Pastels. To me, it looks and feels like suede. The eggplant layer was dry embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder.
