Saturated Canary Challenge #3

Yep, I'm smiling like the canary that swallowed the cat!  The Saturated Canary images by Krista Smith have me hooked! I so love all my favorite artists, and now there is one more for me to keep my Copics flowing!  Here for Challenge #3 is my very first Saturated Canary finished image:

Meet Frizzy Jynx!  She is my inner wild child! If I could be unabashedly wacky I want to be Frizzy Jynx!  The challenge this week is to make a card or paper project as easy as 1 - 2 - 3, one image, two patterned papers, and three embellies.  The papers are from the DCWV Hippie Chic matstack and this time I actually chose the paper before I colored the image!  This paper was perfect for this wild child!  The embellies are from Making Memories Chloe's Closet -- yep, I still have a bunch of that! Who'd have thought it would go so well with the papers?  I have to give credit to Jen del Muro for the sketch, even though it is from October LAST YEAR!  Never let a great sketch go to waste!

 Frizzy Jynx close up, colored with Copics.  I know I was smiling the whole time I colored her, and I think I even let out a giggle as I squiggled ink on her hair!

If you haven't met Krista yet you are in for a treat, and she has a top-notch design team, too!

Have a great day and take care of yourself!

Just fabulous Barb and so beautifully coloured sweetie, funny though, I thought you already WERE unabashedly wacky!
I had an idea from your post yesterday that you may be using a Saturated Canary image (did I tell you I was psychic? LOL)
I've resisted going shopping for some of these cuties so far, but I think I'm weakening.
lol Chrissie xx

Such a cute image...I love her! Your coloring is wonderful, and I really love her hair (that would be Shelbie's hair if she didn't tame it a bit -hee hee!). Your groovy papers are perfect!
