Fifth Try!!

Hello Everyone.....

You all know this image..and I coloured her 4 times and binned her, even now I post this card under protest...I dont usually have a lot of trouble, but every now and then an image ...no matter how gorgeous it is, I struggle with the colouring...putting the colours in tte right place, getting the colours right, I dont know...just found this so hard, but here she is...Kirsta Smiths image 'Canary Love'


I love the flower, it was off a headband in the 123$ shop...and the beautiful papers were a freebie download from Lenas scrapbooking  ...



Close up of image...coloured with pencils...glitter on her socks and the bird...



Side view..and decorated inside too...

I have had this card sitting in my box for ages..everyone was popping their cards up with this image and mine just sat..[I still dont like it]...but will do her again one day...and I got the new freebie from Krista yesterday...and boobie love, but cant show that one yet...

Anyway, there she is, it is done..posted.

Big day at work today...and very frosty and chilly this morning...will need socks today...

Oh!...did you see...I won a $25 Whimsey Stamps voucher...from  a Birthday bloghop..so lucky..

See you tomorrow...and thank you so much for all the lovely comments you leave...

Luv CHRISSYxx

I think its gorgeous Chrissy, sometimes we are just too critical of our own work I think! That flower is something else! I got Krista's new freebie too, I love her images when they have been coloured by someone else - they do take a long time to do! Take care, hugs Susan x

Well I don't know what you thought was wrong with the other ones Chrissy but this one is coloured perfectly! Great layout and I really like that flower.
Also, congrats on your Whimsy win. A $25 gift cert is a hefty one and you can shop and shop and shop! There's a new release today too... I love her stamps, digis and dies!

Isn't it funny how we can get a "block" with a certain image (I had it with my strawberry Mo Manning at the weekend) but everyone says its brilliant. Well, it's brilliant hun, don't be so hard on yourself - this is a daunting image but you have done her proud, hold that head up high girl! Hugs Sxx

I think you've done a great job but I so get the PITA image that never seem to color up properly. You're braver than me...mine end up in the bin.
