Life Should Be Celebrated card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I have a Saturated Canary card that I hope you like. I tried a watercolour background after I coloured the image which was a little scary, I was quite worried I would ruin the whole thing as I haven't done this very often over the years but I love how it turned out in the end.

  2. Absolutely beautiful, Lucy. Love her hair and dress. I've been working on some Christmas cards and after coloring them I wanted to put in a background of a night scene as the image is a caroler. But, I've been scared I'd ruin what I had colored. Which as you know you don't just color one up in 20 minutes. Maybe I'll try adding a background first that way if it's messed up, no big deal. I'll recycle it. Hah!
