Saturated Canary - Fashion Decades

Hi everyone! Oooh...I am so excited to share this one with you.  Saturated Canary was the first stamp company I bought digital stamps from, and I fell in love with her images right off the bat.  I don't get a chance to color them as much as I'd like (I need like 10 more hours a day, lol), but today I made time for to color just for fun. I bought a bunch of her new images recently, and I was playing around tonight with her new 'Fashion Decades' images, and boy are they amazing.  She is having a coloring challenge on her blog , and I really wanted to play along, and well...here is my entry (using 40's Fashion Decade which you can find here):


The Copics I used are: skin - E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R11 & R20; hair - E53, E57 & E59, dress - Y11, Y21, Y26 & YR31;  shoes - W3, W5, W7 & W9; lips/flowers - R32, R37 & R39.  I also used a fine tip black sharpie on her dress.


For the card I used Bazzill cardstock, paper by Basic Grey (Barista), twine, and flowers/leaves from Wild Orchid, and Prima.  These colors are so not ones I normally use, which made it a but more challenging, but also more fun.  My daughter will tell you I'm not a fan of the color yellow, but after making this card, I might change my mind about that.  Once I colored her dress, I wanted to jazz it up a bit, and decided to go with black polka dots.  About 1/3 of the way into it, I decided to try doing only half of the bottom portion, and I am quite pleased with the result!  I also didn't feel like doing a bunch more polka dots, so I am glad it worked, lol.  I hope you like her.  I think I need to make more time for Krista's images...I still love them!  Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Saturated Canary - 'Fashion Decades' Coloring Challenge
