Survivor

This is my entry for Tuesday's Color challenge over at The Outlawz. This week's color combination is Apricot, Dusky Pink and Cream. The added twist is to use 3 or more layers.


For this card, I used another spectacular Doodle Pantry image. This set is called I Will Survive. Here is a picture of all the wonderful images you get in this set.



I didn't use a sentiment on the outside of the card because I think the image speaks for itself. But, there is a wonderful quote from Emily Dickinson that comes with this set that I used on the inside of the card. I took one of Laurie's pre-colored images, removed the colored background and printed it on ivory card stock. I re-colored the image using Copic markers - Y15 for the bird's body; YR14 for the beak and feet; RV13 for the ribbon. I used Spellbinder's Marvelous Squares die to cut the image out and mounted it on melon card stock. The designer paper is unknown from my stash, but I used YR14 to color some of the dots and layered that on apricot card stock. I then layered that on more melon card stock and then ivory card stock for the base. The flowers are a die from Cheery Lynn. I finished the card off with 2 apricot and 10 raspberry goosebumps from Queen & Co.

I am also entering this card in the following:

  1. A wonderful card and I went back to re-read the Emily Dickerson poem. I think we need an oldie but goodie day because I forgot about birdie with the cancer ribbon around neck. Again, beautiful job!
