First I printed my image at the size corresponding the die I knew I was going to use. I quickly coloured the background in YR16 and YR18, without trying to blend the colours and without trying to avoid the leaves since I had planned to colour them in black to have some contrast with the orange.
I then coloured my cute character in Copics (see list at the bottom of the post).
To make my colours pop a bit more, I coloured the leaves in black.
I then die cut my image with a Lawn Fawn Stitched die and I applied a bit of Distress Inks around the edges with a blending tool.
At last, I stamped a sentiment and added touches of gold with a gel pen in the black leaves and also a few dots on my orange background.
