Sketch Frenzy Friday, Vases Thanks

Hello, everyone!  I am now officially a member of the Sketch Frenzy Friday team!  Yay!  I look forward to creating cards from the wonderful sketches presented - like the one for today's SFF.  Thanks, Marisol Gutierrez, for the great sketch!

I immediately went to my Vivid Vases stamp set.  Using the Another Thank You photopolymer set, I did curve the sentiment as much as I could.

I stamped Vivid Vases on two different Designer Series Paper sets.  Cutting out the vases took a little bit of time, but I believe it was worth it. 
I then used my Blendabilities for the flowers and leaves.  First off, I suggest you stamp the flowers on scrap pieces of paper to practice until you are satisfied with the look before coloring on the main image.

A few notes about coloring with Blendabilities:
***When coloring small images, use only two of the marker set. It's difficult to get all three in.  I used light & dark markers, coloring it several times to get the better blended look.
***To color the navy flower, dot with the dark color and then fill in with the light color.
***I used only the light from the Old Olive Blendabilities for the leaves.  I hope that Stampin' Up! comes up with a lighter green marker set.
***For the first flower, I did "tip to tip" coloring.  First I colored in the whole flower with the Blush marker from the Skin Tone Assortment.  Then using the Blush marker, I picked up a little color from the Melon Mambo light marker.  Starting at the bottom of the flower, I flicked the color up until it blended with the Blush color.  I did this several times until I was satisfied with the look.
