Color Challenge at Outlawz

I love it when the Outlawz has a Surprise! color challenge. They give an inspiration photo and one color to use! We get to pick the other two colors and the theme!
 Here is the inspiration picture! The chosen color is Rose Red!

For my other two colors I chose, Warm Grey and Leafy Green! And for the twist: SWIRLS

Here is my card!

For my image, I used an Indigo Blu image from the Live, Laugh, Love set. I stamped it in Memento London Fog and colored in with Copics W1 and W2. My shading around the bird is colored with Colorless Blender, R0000, and E40.

I used Spellbinders Circles Nestabilities and Framed Fancy Tags, also from Spellbinders.
My Green swirls are from a Tim Holtz Flourish die.
Sentiment by Gina K Designs.

My background paper is from my stash.

I'm entering my card in these challenges:
Show It Off Sunday - anything goes
Creative Fingers - Anything Goes

Hope you are enjoying the weekend.


  1. Darcy, this is a sweet image and your coloring of it is very nice. I find coloring birds intimidates me, but you have it down pat. Your background is just beautiful and just the right amount. Your background paper is bright an cheery which will also help someone feel better. Enjoy your day.
