More Tomboy Jess

A few weeks ago I made a card with this same image, Tomboy Jess by Ladybug Crafts Ink. The current image was actually the first one I coloured, but the colours did not come out the way I had intended them, so I started over using slightly more subdued colours. Besides, I had some problems with bleeding, but I solved that for this card by fussy-cutting the image and attaching it with foam tape for added dimension.
The flowers were die-cut from a piece of felt-like material I got from the local bookstore and then coloured them in different shades of blue with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

For the lay-out I used this week's sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches:
