The Garden of life

Hi All,

This is a gorgeous image from Saturated Canary/little darlings that I coloured up over the holidays, I so enjoyed turning her into a card.

I have of course coloured with copics:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, E04, R20
Hair:E18, E08, YR18, YR14
T-Shirt: G99, G94, YG95, YG21
Skirt: W7, W5, V15, V12, V000
Boots: W9, W7, W5,W3,W1
Roses: RV69, RV66, RV63
Leaves: G99, YG25, YG01
Daisy: Y21, Y38, YR18
Sissors: W5, W2, W1
Basket E29, E25, E21

I have edged all my papers with distress ink mulled lavender & antique linen, I also stamped a bit of background detail using memento sand, and a stamp from papermania/just to say

The papers are "old treasures 8x8 paper stack .. I have used dies from magnolia, memory box and joy ... and a good sprinking of frantage too.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous Juls and your colouring is wonderful x

  3. Juls, glad you have accepted the 613 Ave C challenge to share your project & creativity! Love the soft brown with the pop of lavenders - your coloring is beautiful! I especially like the elements you have added that are so interesting from the butterflies in flight to the fence and Fran-tage, to the wonderful wire wrapped, heart shaped, "stone" flowers.
