Simon Says Stamp Friendly Frolic Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone! I’m super excited to be apart of the Simon Says Stamp Friendly Release Blog Hop!

I’m using the new stamp set Sketch Lotus Stamp and Die Set. I stamped my flower in Memento Desert Sand Ink so I can have that no line look. Then, I colored it with my Copic Markers. I love the way using the soft colors make it look almost water colored.

I’m using R20, R000, RV000, BV01, BV000, BV0000, V01, V0000, G21, G20.
