Another Joan Elliot Stamp

I love the Joan Elliot images! Here is my second new Joan Elliot stamp by ladybug and friends.
I have used a DCWV card kit, Prima flowers and an old sketch from a previous Sketch Saturday challenge.
Marie asked on my last post what I use to colour my images, well I use my trusty whispers brushstrokes pens on water colour paper, I have contemplated buying some copics or pro markers but the water colouring is the most enjoyable part of making the card for me so I don't think I would like using the copic pens. I tend to colour the image directly with the pen where I want the darker shading and then use a brush and water to drag the colour out to the lighter areas, I also colour onto an acrylic block and take the colour from there to the image with a paint brush sometimes.
