Techno Stamper - Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge

Happy Monday - hope everyone had a great weekend!  Are you ready for this week's Techno Lunchtime  Sketch Challenge?  Below is this week's sketch and after you have created your card for the sketch, you can load it HERE.

For my card I used the new Stampin' Up! hostess set, Simply Sketched.  I stamped the flower image on watercolor c/s using a black StazOn inkpad, and then colored in the flower with a blender pen using Rose Red, Old Olive and Wild Wasabi markers.  I then cut it out and layered it over the flower image that I had originally stamped on the watercolor c/s.  I felt it needed a little extra something, so hence why I stamped the image twice......

I used the background image from the set, Elements of Style.  After I stamped the background image, I distressed the edges, crumped up the paper and lightly swiped some Soft Suede on the sides.

Hope you like my take on this week's sketch; below is a list of what I used for my card:
