Color the World Spring

Hello Everyone!

I just wanted to share a few spring cards that I have made using House Mouse-Designs. I really love this image as it reminds me of myself.   I want to color everything! Flower: I started with my lightest color then slowly added my darker colors on top, using less of each color as I got darker.  The image looks much more vibrant in person (lol).  Hope you enjoy my card as much as I do.

Flower: r24m YR04, Y15
green: YG03, YG63, YG67 (note that I put the darker colors in the deeper areas that get less sun)
mouse: w1, w3, w5, w7
skin: E00, E11, R20 for cheeks.
ground: various browns: E00, E33, E35 and W3
sky: B000 and BG00
butterflies: Martha Stewart punch

colorful Hugs,
