Almost No Line colouring

I am giving myself a pat on the back  for using every stamp set I received in my last order from Altenew a couple of weeks ago!

We have gorgeous Bearded Irises growing in our garden so I had to have this stamp set to try to recreate their beauty. This time however, instead of using blue/lavender, I've used the colours from the Altenew challenge. I did find a pic of a teal Iris online, so they do exist and here is my version....

I stamped the images with various Distress and Memento Inks and also used Zig CCRB Markers on the foliage. I left the lines visible, because Irises do have veins . I used Liquitex Gold Acrylic ink for the flower centres and watered down for the background.

I'm entering the following challenges:-
