JRC_052 Inspired by Colour!

Hello Everyone!!!  Today it's another JustRite Stampers Challenge and this week we have the pleasure of hopping with some of the Copic Instructors!!!  This week is a colour challenge based on the inspiration picture above.  You don't have to use the Copic Colours listed, they are only a guide!  You can choose any combination of these colors (or just one, for perhaps a monochromatic project) or all colors or just get inspiration from the photo.  Neutrals from the photo can also be used: cream & brown.  What colour is inspiring you???
I decided to lean more towards the blues and greens with a hint of orange flowers!  :)  I actually began by stamping the birdhouse from Birdhouses in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copic Markers (B91, B95, B97, E50, E51, E53, BG000, Y21, Y35, Y38, YG03, YG63, YG67, 0).  I then very carefully cut it out and placed it aside.  Next I stamped a border also from Birdhouses in Memento Bamboo Leaves and cut it out with Circle Nestabilities and matted with Old Olive cut with circle and scallop circle Nestabilities.  I then used some twine to create a hanging string for the birdhouse.  The sentiment is from the Happy Everything set has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut with JustRite's custom die set called Nested Sentiment Dies and then popped up on foam tape.

Gorgeous Colours Kathy, I love visiting your blog. I just noticed the dates for Sydney's intermediate course in July. I hope there's another later in the year coz I'll be away at a retreat for 4 days at that time, sigh.
