Digital Tweetie Thrown Into Colour

(The green patterned papers are not as yellow in real life as they appear to be in the above photos & the two floral embellishments are extremely shiny)

Challenge 38 at the Sugar Bowl is a sketch by Judy with an optional theme of scallops. The patterned paper is full of scalloped circles & flowers, the image itself consists of several scalloped shapes (the wings & feet), the two floral embellishments are essentially scalloped shapes & I used a scalloped oval to mount the image upon plus a scalloped circle & scalloped corner to decorate the card inside. The sketch was rotated 90 degrees clockwise & the colours used are those set by Color Throwdown Challenge #100.

Stamp Sugar Nellie Limited Edition digital image.
Inks etc.... Aged Mahogany Distress Ink & Brilliance Rocket Red for inking cardstock & paper edges.
Colouring Copic Ciaos.
Cardstock Maroon, dark mint green & white from "stash".
Papers of unknown origin (a gift from a friend who was clearing out surplus stock).
Punches Woodware (scalloped oval, circle & scalloped circle), EK Success (scalloped corner).
The large red flower sequins, gems & ribbon were from "stash".
