Blending blossoms

I love this blossom image from the Soft Summer stamp set. It’s a two-step stamp, with a solid image in the same shape in the set, too. But I just used the outline image for this card, stamping it in Basic Gray then colouring with Watercolour Wonder™ crayons and blending with blender pens. I used Regal Rose on the flowers and Always Artichoke on the leaves and stem. Then, to add some depth, I went around the whole of the image with a Bordering Blue crayon and blended.

Not sure if you can see but I Versamarked all over the background with the other image – sprig thingy - from this set.
