Marvelous Marigolds

I've been playing with the Marvelous Marigolds stamp set from AMuse Studio, which I think is a good stamp set for techniques - it has both bold and outline stamps.  It has flower heads and a leaf, but no stem, which I thought was weird, until it hit me that a stem is not that hard to draw; my experience with long skinny stamps would suggest that a stem would be easier to draw than stamp.  so, I put it to the test:
The confetti paper is pretty good at disguising my overstamping.  I started out with the rock and roll technique, then brushed over the stamped bits with a water brush to blend the color even more.  The letters are diecut (Sizzix Wingo Zingo) - I love diecut sentiments, but they are a pain to piece together.

Drawing the stem was fun, and I like that the next marigold I stamp can have a completely different shape.

Of course you can draw a stem, I've seen what you can draw and a stem is simple in comparison to most of your work, lol. It's a beautiful card Juliet!
