I heart you Canary Love

Edit:  Shared top 3 honors at Going Grey at Scrap-Creations
Edit:  Shared Artist's Choice Award at Sundays with Chrissy

Good Sunday evening all.  Thought I'd pop in and share a chard I've made for my granddaughter.  Here is Saturated Canary's Canary Love...

This is the first Saturated Canary card I've colored up and it sure was fun!!  The only thing was I had a heck of a time with her hair, at least the over one shoulder part.  Things were moving along swimmingly and then the color from my copics started moving and leaving messy, blech spots.  I tried to do what I could to fix it up, but now it looks pretty dorky.  I've decided I need to try some different coloring paper.  I order a small pack of X-press It and hope it will help keep those icky colored spots from happening.  It's annoying when you've worked on an image for quite some time, then the cardstock messes all your work up!!  But... except for that goofy hair, I'm quite please with her and Madeline will be as well.  Purple is her fave!!

Aren't these little gals so cute!?!?!  It's those eyes I tell ya.  They have that 'wide-eyed and innocent' look, don't ya think?  I have a couple more of these and just can't wait to have some more free time to get to work on one of them.  I'll probably just make some time.  Tee hee!

Oh yea, I am very familiar with the Saturated Canary hair issues... can I tell you how many I threw in the garbage once I got to the hair!! Yikes.. The way I fix that is to use Promarkers on the thin hair strands. They have a snap on tip that is like a fine liner and I get the thinnest hair strands colored. Also, you can use a colored pencil but the promarkers worked best for me. Again, so glad to have visited your Ann Marie


Denise , fabulous colouring what a stunning card well done Hugs Elaine
