I just love Dr. Seuss, and made this card for today's Color Challenge (pink passion, kiwi kiss, chocolate chip) in honor and memory of his wonderful work.I got this idea when I was searching for coloring pages for my kids... I found this one of Horton carrying the flower that holds the Whos, and it was the perfect size for a card. I printed it out, then went over it with a permanent marker, followed by heat setting it with my heat gun.I colored the trees and bushes with kiwi kiss ink usiing my aqua painter. I color Horton, the trees and the sky with pencils and blended with goo gone. And even though you can't see it in the photo, the tiny flower is colored with my pink passion marker. I tried layering with choc chip cardstock, but it just didn't pop like I wanted it to, so I used black and white as my neutrals.Thanks for looking and remember... "A person's a person, no matter how small..."

How cute! Very nicely done.

Love the crispness of your pictures. You must have a very good camera, cameraman/woman and best lighting.

Love this card Beverly!!! Dr. Seuss is one of my all time favorites. When I taught my second graders, we would always celebrate his birthday. Horton was one of the stories that we would always read. I love how you tied the color challenge in with this card!! Love it, love it, love it!!!!
