The current challenge over at Aurora Wings is 'Crop It', a fun and interesting challenge that makes you think a bit more than you would expect. I started with a totally different idea and after 4 hours of colouring etc. I ruined the work when die cutting it grrrrrrr, only place for that was the bin and a good hour or two of sulking before I went back to try again with a different image, so unplanned other than the area of the image I wanted to use :) :)
This is the area of the image 'Pansy' showing the section I cropped to use.
The image was coloured with Polychromos and the background Pan Pastels. A bit of clear embossing in the opposite corner to the coloured image added texture and an area of interest that did not distract from the image. The sentiment is from Crafters Companion.
