I began by stamping the image with a Colorbox gold ink. I then sat down, relaxed, zoned out, and just colored the image. I then started looking around for paper I could pair it with and decided to use a DCWV pad, The Primrose. I love the sparkly grey diamond paper. In looking at the image, I decided I wanted to tone down the white background. I pulled out Hickory Smoke ink and Unity’s Ledger stamp and stamped around he image. I also pulled out a random, dotted image that I could add a pale green and yellow distress ink to. I inked up the sides of the image and the paper from the pad I thought could back the image.
For embellishments, I decided on 2 ribbons, a rusty organza and a Tim Holtz tweed. I found a crown brad I thought would go. And finally I pulled out a Bo Bunny die I recently picked up deeply discounted. I used one of the crowns on 3 different colored papers and glued them together. Finally I added gray crystals.
