I didn't have some of the elements found in Linda's tag, so I decided to focus on the layout and the design. The background was created using a gelli plate, sequin waste and pearlized paint. After it had dried I smeared a dye ink over the surface to capture the pattern and the coral color found in the challenge. I added birds from Artistic Outpost and colored them with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell pencils. The flowers were dabbed with gold paint. The trim is metallic and from Ranger / Tim Holtz smeared with the same gold paint. The background is painted with Ranger Metallic Stains.
