I HEART Saturated Canary.
After seeing this Saturated Canary beauty on Shirl's and Eva's blogs, I fell in love with her and had to have her too! Luckily, I was able to get her for free by going to Krista's post.
Krista sells her digi stamps through her Etsy store. (Etsy is down right now so I can't provide you with the exact link, but you can go through the challenge blog). I admire her characters' eyes, their wild, strand-y hair, and sometimes-awkward poses. I also adore their detailed clothes. In this case, her ruffles and many layers! It took me many days to color her (please pardon the shoes/socks area), but I really love how she turned out.
I am entering this card for Saturated Canary's Challenge # 12 - Doilies. I went through my supplies, looking for the one doily I thought I had but couldn't find it. I just made my own by punching out some favor bags. Hope that's ok :).
The rest of the supplies came from Dear Lizzy's new Neopolitan line, my current fave. I think the soft, spring colors balance the image's dark, striking hair and almost-sad expression. Oh, and the lace ribbon is from Hero Arts.
Have a wonderful day!
