Look at the Color!

You have a week left to enter this colorful challenge.  You can create anything you wish as long as it is colorful.  Take a peek at some more inspiration for this challenge.
Since my challenge is being sponsored by Copic, I decided to use them in a different manner this time.  I use the markers to airbrush the background of my tag.  The flowers and greeting are by Stampin' Up.  I used Memories Artprint Brown ink to stamp the images.  After that I added two colorful butterfly stickers and a scrap piece of red rafia and my tag was finished.

This reminds me of a glorious sunset in a field of flowers.  Aren't you glad God gave us color?
This is my colorful bonanza card! I wanted to try coloring on a background that was already colorful. So I started with a piece of card stock that I'd saturated with watercolor jewels from Zia Stamps in multiple shades of blue. I stamped a Sweet Pea Stamp, another image by Ching Chou Kuik, this one is called "Dance of Butterfly." I liked the idea of stamping the mermaid on a blue background. She is colored with colored pencils -- I used just about every color that I have! I cut that image and attached it to some yellowish card stock. The card that serves as a base for everything was also heavily colored by me, but with several colors of starburst stains. I chose the pale green ribbon to make a border on the diagonal ends because it reminded me of seaweed. Enjoy and keep coloring!

The sun is shining, the birds are singing and the garden is brimming with colour and so are the papers from Cosmo Cricket. Every time I look at them I have to smile. I layered the papers, punched (Stampin' Up edge punch) and machine-stitched them and mounted them onto a plain square card and Bazill Basics paper. The stamped images are from Elzybells and coloured with Copics and Koh-i-noors. The little canvas is paper-pieced with Cosmo Cricket paper and the image layer also machine-stitched around the edges. The final touches are some ribbon and little buttons from my stash.
