All The Flowers of Tomorrow - My 1st Saturated Canary!


I been admiring the fabulous cards on other blogs created with the gorgeous images from Saturated Canary but I hadn't taken the plunge as I was a little intimidated by the wonderful work I'd already seen. But when Krista opened her new store and offer a discount I decided to drop a few in my cart just to try them ;)
This is my very first attempt and I had to use my cheapo cardstock as at the moment my printer does not like the X-Press It and I haven't managed to coax it to print on it yet.
I loved the hair on this cutie so chose her as my first.
Challenges:
Bunny Zoes - Anything Goes
Just Keep on Creating - Anything Goes
One Stitch at A Time - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes (2 entries only)

Creative Card Crew - Dimension (3 entries only)
Going Grey - Bingo! (I chose Flowers, Die Cut, Digi) (2 entries only)

Card Recipe:
Image - Cerridwen by Saturated Canary
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - French Country Stack by DCWV
Sentiment - Heidi Grace
Butterfly - Prima
Flowers - Recollections
Swirl Die - Quickutz
Lace - Wrights
Pearls - Recollections





Now you seasoned Saturated Canary lovers will see the glaring error I made in the coloring a certain part of the image but I didn't realize until lots of color was there and so I just had to go with it. Please forgive my innocent mistake :)

I loved her and can't wait to color her again with my real cardstock once I get my printer issue fixed.
Have a wonderful day!
Katie

Gorgeous, gorgeous card...Thanks for playing in this weeks "bingo" challenge at going Grey with scrap-Creations!

Stunning card.

I hope that you get your printer sorted soon. My printer doesn't like some of my card, it sends it straight through without it stopping to print on it. I've found that if I keep re-loading the same piece of card it eventually stops and prints the image. Takes about 4 tries but it does work in the majority of cases

Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Creative Card Crew for our dimension challenge
