This is a tough challenge for me as I do love all colors. I usually let my image draw me toward the colors that will best highlight the image.
For this challenge I've used a newly released Fairy Cake Gardener image by Sue Rundel-Hughes on a side-open birthday card. You can find this lovely digital image here. The wonderful hearts sprinkled over the icing, shown in the butterfly wings and over the fairy's clothing make this a wonderful Valentine and/or loving image. Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image.
Here's a view of the front of my card showing how I've used Fairy Cake Gardener to convey an outdoor fairy habitat theme. A Morning Star "sprinkled" sentiment fits nicely in an open upper corner. A few handmade accent daisies are clustered in the lower corner.
The inside of the card is designed similar to the front and includes a birthday sentiment from a Stampin' Up! Elegant Greetings set. I stamped directly over the textured Bazzill bling cardstock then used my Copic Multiliner 0.03 to darken the missed areas of the stamped sentiment.
You've got to hop over to the Crafts and Me Stamps Challenge blog to see how the amazingly talented Dynamite Digi girls have shown their favorite color combos while using Crafts and Me Stamps digital images.
