Ava – Saturated Canary

Did you get the gorgeous image that Krista from Saturated Canary was giving away on her blog?  OMW she is just a doll!  As soon as I downloaded it I had to sit and colour it – these images make me HAPPY!!  I’ve used her for this week’s Saturated Canary challenge, and this time we have to make a bookmark.   Now then, I started off with the best of intentions and made a bookmark but love the image so much there is no way I am hiding her inside a book, plus I have a Kindle so even more of an excuse to make her into a card.  Soooo, I made the bookmark, photographed it then turned it into a card instead.  Aaah, much better lol

And of course a special little lady has to go on a card using special papers – Inkido from Dies to Die For.  And I didn’t shed a tear when cutting it lol.

I used a Marianne Design die for the corner after inking it with vintage photo DI.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts as is the lace.  I used small gardenia, 25mm rose, 20mm roses, 15mm roses and 10mm roses.  I also added some pearls to finish it off.

The wee tags are from Lili of the Valley’s Sentiment Tags

And now I am going to catch some rays in the garden, it’s our Ben’s 7th birthday and they are coming along for a barbeque.

  1. I love her too and nabbed her quickly.

    She looks super as a bookmark Bev but I think the card is much better.

  32. Hi Bev

    Hope all is well with you. When you get hold of those SC cuties, they seem to alive. Your colouring as usual is out of this world. I must admit I like both bookmark & card.

  55. Hi Bev
    what a beautiful card, just lovvvvvvvvvvvvvvve the image (she is sitting in my craft room waiting to be coloured). at the moment I am knee (neck) deep in making cards to sell for teamhannah charity, so Ava will have to wait a while,. Krista is such an AMAZING artist just love her work.
    Hope Ben has a lovely Birthday & enjoys the barbecue, I bet his Grandma/Nanny/Grandmothers card is his favourite.
