Keep your face to the sunshine

This is the project I have been working on for Unity's {Be Inspired} Challenge. See below for the graphic. I love these colours and it prompted a garden theme which led me directly to Andie Girl cares for what she loves.

I laid down the colour with my distress markers, then went to town with my waterbrush and spritzer and let it dry before stamping. I think I like the result. After, I did a bit of "in the lines" colouring with my distress markers, but I don't like the effect so much - the boots, the flowers in the pot - layering like that can make for muddy colours. Oh well, it was an experiment after all, but I like the overall effect.

Here is the inside:
