My First Saturated Canary card

 Oh my I've been admiring the fantastic digi's from Saturated Canary that are appearing all over blog land and have finally taken the plunge and coloured in this lovely which was given away as a freebie last week.
 I have coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers, boy did that take some time to get it right but worth it in the end, not the best colouring in the world but I'm happy with it. I have inked around her with Tattered Rose distress ink and the stamp around the edge with a swirly stamp in the same colour.
The papers are all from MME Blush pad which I teamed with a piece of Kraft cards. I have inked all the edges with distress ink to pull it all together. The pink ribbon was coloured with my ink pad and the aqua with my promarkers. I made the flower by cutting 4 scalloped circles from some DP, pinning them together with a pearl brad and scrunching them up around the brad and the flattening it out. Lastly some aqua pearls and a sentiment which again has been coloured with distress ink.

Promarkers used:
Flesh:ivory , blush, saffron
Hair: tea rose (flex), putty, sunkissed pink, pastel pink
Clothes: tea green, grey green, pastel green, aquamarine (flex)
Bird: cool aqua, duck egg
Other: cool grey 1
