Sweet Sixteen

 Evening folks, I was asked by my friend if I could make a special sixteenth birthday card for her Niece, this is what i came up with so hope it's what she was hoping for!


This is my first time using a Saturated Canary image, she really scared me i can tell you but I really enjoyed colouring her and I'm really pleased how she turned out. So definitely wont be the last.  Coloured her with Promarkers and Fleximarkers then added a touch of Frosted Stickles.




The flowers are made using a scalloped Nestie circle, then embossed with a SU embossing folder and cut with a fancy edged scissors and rolled to created the flower. Cut a punched flower and glued together.





 8x8 Scalloped card
Memorybox Leaf corner
White seam binding
 coloured with Promarkers
Gems,Ribbon from stash

Hard to believe this is the first time you have coloured a Saturated Canary image, you have done a stunning job and the card is a beauty. I know what you mean about the images being scary though! It's all that hair, it goes in so many different swirls and directions and you have to be quite detached to get a good 'overall' view, but you have done a superb job, well done. Thanks for joining us this week at I ♥ ProMarkers, hope to see you again soon!
