Crafty Ann's Challenge #56 - Let's think hot!

Well the Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog Design Team have now had a little break and it's time to get down to challenges again.  This fortnight we have been given the challenge "Let's think hot!" ie hot colours or summery images.
Last year I decided when making Design Team cards I would print off and colour in more than one image as often I would have things go wrong.  Since starting this system more things go right which means there are more cards for my stall.  This time things went right so I couldn't decide which colourway I liked best so I decided to show you both.
Here is a close-up of card no 1 with a red and green colourway and below is a close-up of card no 2 with a red and brown colourway,
For both cards I have used one of Crafty Ann's newer digital images of the barge and canal.  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers.  It took a while and I managed to use 9 different shades of green and 6 different shades of brown!!!  I have then used my X-cut tearing ruler around the edges and highlighted this with a chalk ink pad.  The backing papers in both cards are the red/orange Funky Paper Collection, green Polished Stone and brown Polished Stone.  The flowers I have made using a new Marianne's Designs die which has a large circle but inside it has various flower sizes.  The paper is the red/orange used as the backing paper and I have distressed the edges with a chalk ink pad along with all the backing papers as I HATE seeing white edges.  The flowers are finished off with brads to hold them together.  The extras added to the card are inserts, ribbon and sentiments off the computer.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

The Squirrel and the Fox - Something new - new die and new outing for this digital image for me
Robyn's Fetish - Anything goes
Pile it on - Anything goes
