Photo Inspiration

Good morning.
Another Saturday so it's time for another challenge at Fantasy Stampers. This week the lovely Jan chose:-

A photo

Very pretty it is too. with Easter on the horizon I could have gone down that route but I decided to go off piste so to speak with my DT inspiration.

The link to the photo are the tulips and roses. In my card the background paper is of pink tulips on a yellow ground from NitWits and Tilda with a cross necklace carrying a single pink rose. There are also roses on the mount which I created with a Cuttlebug embossing folder after die cutting a circle with a Spellbinders die. The mount was cut smaller than the 6 x 6 base card and mounted on pads. This type of design is great for using odd bits of paper I have lying around in the bit box. I matched the colours in the tulips with Tilda's clothes and rose. I used Copics to colour as follows:-

Hair - E51,25,29,35,71
Dress - RV91,93,95,97
Shoes - RV91,93,95
Skin - E000,00,11,13,R20
Bow and Rose - RV000,02,04 YG11,13,17
Cross - Y11,15,17

So why don't you pop along to Fantasy Stampers and see what the other lovely DT's have created then have a go yourself.

I shall enter it in the following challenges:-
Creative Card Crew - Spring
Sweet Stamping Challenge - Flowers
Sketch Saturday - #305
