Finally, A Saturated Canary!!

So my plan to post at least every other day has gone astray - too many migraines the last few days - that's what happens when exactly one week ago we were basking in +13C, and today it's a whopping -27C.  They always say that if you don't like the weather here in Calgary, just wait 5 minutes, but unfortunately this cold is around for a few more days - tomorrows high is going to be a wonderful -30C!!  Since the weather is just frightful it's a great time to color and create!
On Saturday I had a few friends over to color. and I managed to get quite a few images for upcoming challenges colored, plus a couple of others done just for fun - today I completed four of those cards, but three are for dt work so you will have to wait to see those.  Today I am showing off my first ever Saturated Canary card!!!

Digital artist Krista Smith draws these adorable images and sells them on Etsy through her Saturated Canary site, and this is Peace & Love Hipster.  I stamped her on Copic Xpress It paper with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored her with Copics.  The dp is from the Crush collection by Bo Bunny and I thought that it was perfect for the hippy generation of peace and love - white doves anyone?  I used a pink and a black pen to draw the faux stitches, ribbon was from my stash, the sentiment is from CC Designs, and the pearls were made with the Anthracite Viva Decor Pearl Pen.
