Pops of colour

I've done quite a bit of mixing monochromatic with pops of colour for this weeks inspiration at Outlawz Sketch

I've been practising colouring flowers with my Copics again :)
Once coloured I cut the image out with a Spellbinders die.  To take the sharp white off the edges I distressed it with Black Soot ink from Tim Holtz.

Here's our sketch for this week

I actually used a compass to draw out the two larger circles behind the image in red and black card, then hand cut them.  This was the first time I've done this and I'm impressed I didn't mess it up LOL!  It give the image a beautiful framed effect.

I've used some more black and red card and one design paper from Dovecraft.  The design paper was also distressed with Tim Holtz black soot ink.

I've left off the extra embellishments this week to showcase the image for you.  All I've added are a few red gems and some rhine stones.

Hope you like my inspiration for this weeks and we see you at the challenge
