Hand me downs

I know it’s not that long since I coloured up this sweetie but she really is my favourite Saturated Canary image, and I coloured her up on Saturday whilst spending a lovely time doing a wee class with a friend.  She wanted to colour red and green, she got it lol.  And I think she will have a lot more confidence colouring with bold colours now.

We used the following copics and pencils to colour Hand Me Downs.
Hair E47, 44, 42, 40 and dark umber pencil
Skin: E11, 00, 000, 0000, R30
Beige: E44, 42, 40 and warm grey 50% pencil
Reds: R89, 37, 35, 32 and Tuscan red pencil
Green: YG67, 63, 61, G20 and olive green pencil

The papers are really really old K & Co Tulip pad.  Broke my heart using these but I had already coloured up the image and nothing else seemed to work like these do.  That’s why I much prefer making up my card first then last thing I do is colour up the image, picking out colours from the papers I have used.  SO much easier.

The sentiment is from the Touch of Elegant Furniture by Whimsy Stamps.

That gorgeous corner die is from Noor! Design.  I embellied it up a bit with some pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I also used seam binding and flowers from WOC - 40mm wild rose, cottage roses, 15mm roses, cherry blossoms and stamens.

  56. Really is a lovely card...love the colors. Sometimes red and green come out a little garish looking, but this is not! It is subdued enough to look beautiful. I really like the embellishments too, again, not loud and in your face.
