On this card I used the cuttlebug to create the circular background. Then I used the the SU white craft pad to ink the raised areas. I colored the interior of the circles with the aqua colored watercolor pencil then I went around the exterior of the circles with the red watercolor pencil. One of the challenges was to use paint so I pulled out my pearlex paints using a blue with the aqua watercolor pencil and using red and gold with the red watercolor pencil. I used the gold to bring out the gold in the dirt in the main photo and the gold on the Kraft colored cardstock.

I used Black cardstock for the main card and the embossed layer - the layer inbetween is White cardstock.

The two larger sections are layered opposite of each other in real red and bermuda bay. The Betty Boop image is coloring book image I found online. I shrunk it to fit the card. I colored this with Tria Pantone and Primsma color markers. Then I took the crayola True to Life colored pencils and used it over the background and then brough in the pearlex paint as well. The black dots are stickles.
