Isabella's Challenge #15

I had this image from Isabella's Sketchbook printed out for ages and when I saw that her challenge this week was an open, anything goes, again this week, I just had to get to coloring.
I used some navy stock from my scrap bin. I colored the image with Copic Markers, and the colors used were, 0, BV04, BV20, Y19, YG91, YG95. My background was embossed using one of the new Tim Holtz Texture Fades called Checkerboard. There is a small butterfly punch from MS which I embellished with pearls. The Happy Birthday sentiment is not marked, and I used SU! circle punches to mount it.

It's another downpour day here in PA. Quack, quack!

This is just stunning with the color combo you have used! Wonderful texture and lovely classic embellishments. Beautiful job on this challenge.

No rain here in Miami. Our rainy season has totally dried up this year. The grass crunches when you walk on it - ugh!

So happy you could play with us again this week at Isabella's Sketchbook!
