I was a bit stuck for ideas for the CD Sunday challenge Inspired by Nature, until I was inspired by one of the participants, Sue T .

Sue had used a robin image from La Pashe and had really made the reds stand out by using a blue background. Well, I didn't want to totally copy her in the same challenge(!) but I wanted to think of another way to make the reds the focus of the card.

First I found the image on La Pashe Just Inklined and,using the colour boost tool in My Craft Studio, changed the black lines to a sepia colour. I coloured the image in with Promarkers keeping everything to neutral (from the skin-tone set!) except the red.  The music paper was also from the La Pashe Cd.

I really like what you have done with the image - very effective and the sparkles add just the finishing touch.

Hi Marina,
The pops of red really work and I really like that music paper behind, such a creative idea!

Lovely card Marina. The colour scheme you have chosen is beautifully subtle and the gorgeous pop of red really works. x x
