Squigglefly - Over the Edge . . .

Happy Monday Everyone!
Today's challenge over at Squigglefly is called "OVER THE EDGE".
Lately I've been so darn busy I feel like I'm ready to jump over the edge, lol!
But I won't because I have more cards to make and hopefully share with you lovely people!

Of course, 'over the edge' refers to going over the edge of your card, LOL!
Here's what I came up with using a fabulous image by new artist Norma Burnell called 'Magical Ride' (available in the store after July 5th).

With all the detail in this beautiful image, I found my new Spectrum Noir pencils worked best for my coloring.  They made it easy to get into those small spaces and blend the colors just the way I wanted them.  I actually Googled the Fuschia plant to get close to the correct colors.

You'll want to be sure to check out all the amazing creation by my team mates and don't miss JenLee's creation (and amazing coloring) using this same image!  A good example of how the same image can look so different when used by different artists (and Jen is definitely an artist in her own right!!!).

Other challenges to share in:
Crafting At The Weekend - Always Anything Goes
Pumpkin Spice Challenge #78 - Anything Goes
So Artful July Challenge - Feathers

I hope you'll come check out our challenges and play along.
Thanks for stopping by today and if you have any questions on this creation please leave me a comment and I'll get an answer to you a.s.a.p.
As always ...

I do like this card very much and your colouring of it is exquisite. I like the way you have gone "over the edge", very clever. Thanks for sharing it with everyone at Soartful. Now I must check out these pencils.

This card is just stunning Darlene. The way you cut the image out and then layered it over the card makes it look like it was embossed around it. Your coloring is just awesome. A beautiful card that will be treasured by the recipient for sure!
