At first, I was a little overwhelmed by the number of colors in Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #43, but I decided the best way to incorporate them all without any of them being too overpowering was to use a line-art image. I choose the spring tulips from Flowers for All Seasons for this 3-1/2" x 5" card.
I used Classic ink pads and a blender pen to color the image. It's hard to tell in the photo, but I used a Stampin' Dimensional under the bird to pop it out. I felt like it got lost again the brown basket otherwise.
I punched the image with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch. I wanted to add a scallop layer behind it and since my punch was too small, I cut it into pieces and adhered it to the back of my circle. Worked like a charm!
