Variations Week: Connie's View

This week the DT got to work with an image by 
ching-chou kuik titled
which you can purchase alone or with
other gorgeous stamps on
plate #211 over at

For my view I layered the image on a
diecut frame that came with my
Genius plates (no mfg name on this).
I layered this onto an embossed panel 
(Spellbinders M'Bossabilities)
"Flower Fun" and added
a diecut by Marianne Creatables
and some flowers by Wild Orchid.
I double-cut one of the stamped
flowers and popped it up for dimension.

I found a color photo of this lovely bird
so I could get the colors somewhat close...
not sure if I succeeded?
Below is a close-up of the Toucan image
with the popped flower:

Be sure to stop back daily as the Team will
be giving you a sample of
different views all week!
