Variations Week: Lori's View




I decided when creating this card to color the toucan with copic markers to resemble a Toco toucan. I used bold red, black, cream, and white papers from Graphic 45 and Street Lace to create a different feel from a traditional tropical look.  The black borders used are from K& Company.  The edges of the papers and image are distressed with Distress Ink in Vintage photo and I used the blade of a pair of scissors to rough the edges up. The flower was colored with copics to match the flowers in the image as closely as possible. I had a lot of fun playing with this stamp!
