Stamps R Us Challenge - Through the Garden Gates

Welcome!  Stamps R Us is having our next challenge with the theme, Through the Garden Gate.  Our generous sponsor is Heart Song Design Shop.  They have a wonderful selection of digital images.

I chose this Picket Fence Tulips image and colored it with Copics.  After sponging the sky, I spritzed it with some Shimmer Mist & looks just like the Cryogen irridescent paper, just enough sparkle but not overkill.

I used some papers from October Afternoon (look out Basic Grey, they're catching up on my DP list, lol), some navy and ruby red.  I added a strip punched from my new EK border punch as well. 

Check out Stamps R Us to see what the rest of the design team came up with and to post your rendition of Through the Garden Gate.

Thanks for looking!
