{3.14.2011} twist challenge week 3

Woo hoo, week 3!

It is week 3 for the Hippity Hop Twist Challenge and that means we have a photo to inspire us!

I love the colors in this photo and I took inspiration from the flowers as well.

I used the Faith Blooms and Music of my Heart {ippity} stamp sets.  I’ve been pulling out some of the older kits.  I don’t think I have used this flower yet.  But don’t quote me on that!  🙂  Giving some love to the oldies but goodies.

I stamped it multiple times and then used some watercolor pencils to add the pops of color.  I didn’t follow my own tip and used a water based ink.  Not smart!  Make sure you grab for some Stazon or something similar.  So I had to be extra careful not to smear the stamped images.  It still turned out in the end.

Lisa H. is up next with her fabulous creation!!!
