Cupcake Inspirations #374 ~ A Color Challenge

Good morning and Happy Sunday!  It's time for a new challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations and this week is all about color:  Mint, Poppy and Kraft or colors like them.
Delicious!!!  I'll take two please... they look small.  ;0)

Our sponsor this week is Little Miss Muffet Stamps 

and they're giving $6 worth of digital stamps to the winner.

They so kindly gave us use of one of their sweet images,so without further adieu, here's my card using Puddle Jack:

I colored this sweet little guy up using Copic markers and using the given color palette posed quite a challenge for me as I tried coloring him in Kraft hues.  He looks like a duck that's had all his feathers plucked!  
I added some Glossy Accents to the water drops and puddle that he's standing in to give it some shine.  You can kind of see it in this picture here.

ETA:  After looking at this card the following day and writing up this post, I just couldn't handle the poor little naked bird so I added some feathers using a white gel pen.  What do you think... better?
The colors on this photo have been enhanced
versus the colors the way they appear on my computer screen normally.  In your opinion,which looks better?  The normal colors before enhancing the photo's look very washed out and muted to me.  I'm still trying to get used to this new laptop.

Thanks for your input ~ Now it's your turn to join in on the fun!

Be sure to visit the rest of the design team for some amazing inspiration.
Birgit ~ That's me!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

  9. The ducky does look better with some feathers and the image and all is just so very sweet. You created this card really well with the colours. I like the first picture with the richer colours and I can see the gloss more in that picture too.

  11. You are so cute Birgit : ) I would not have thought of your duck as naked but the addition of the "feathers" is just ducky!!

    BIG (((Hugs)))

  12. I agree with you. Puddle Jack looks cuter with the white gel pen. He did look a little plucked before. Regardless this is a really cute card.
