Sweet Pea - Koi in Red, White and Blue

This week's challenge on Sweet Pea stampers is to used Red, Blue and White. This is not my usual color combination so I tried to imagine which of my Sweet Pea stamps would look good in these colors. It took some time, but when I looked at Koi, I could instantly see her in Red, Blue and White. So here she is:The image is colored mostly with Prismacolor pencils (only the skin is done with copics), highlighted some areas with glitter pens and added pearls on the lotus flowers. The panels behind the main image are from K&Co and the background is SU specialty paper sponged with various shades of blue.
The sketch is from Moving Along With Time challenge and I'm also entering it into Clearly Delightful Challenge (use pearls, bling or buttons)
