It is no secret that I love colouring hair. It is one of my favourite things to do. That said, I am a little out of practice, so to rectify that I turned to one of my favourite stamp artists for awesome hair: Krista Smith and her fantastic Saturated Canary images. I need to get back into my hair “groove”, so bear with me, but I filmed the colouring process so you can check out a speed colouring video. I have also provided a Copic Marker Colour Palette in the post, so read on!

Today I’d like to share a couple of coloured images with you.
I have shared the step by step progress photos for these images over on my Marker Geek Facebook page, so if you’re interested in checking out the colouring process, pop on over there and take a peek. I will be sharing more of these sets of photos in future, and more besides. 😉
I actually coloured both of the images I’m sharing during May 2013. For some reason they ended up in a folder and were never shared. Tsk!
This one is “Country Mama” from Saturated Canary. Unfortunately I think this one has been retired now, as I can’t find her on the website. I cropped the image and printed her on an A4 sheet.
This lovely lady is “Springtime II” from Saturated Canary. She is still available and you can find her HERE on the Saturated Canary store.
In the past year my style has changed a little and I would colour the faces slightly differently now, but I think they are still pretty fun to look at.
Some of you may remember me posting the coloured image on this project over on FaceBook a while ago, well, I FINALLY decided what to do with her!
I spent quite a while colouring the image, and as it is a favourite, it seemed fitting to create a little something for myself. So, I found a cheap 8″x8″ black frame, removed the glass and used it to create this project.
One of my other great loves is Graphic 45 paper. I love it so much that I rarely use it! I end up saving most of the papers for special projects and altered items, which I usually don’t find the time to create. It was fantastic to actually use some of it for a fun keepsake project. The pads I used for this were Le Cirque and Olde Curiosity Shoppe for the butterflies.
The circus tickets are from a new favourite stamp/die set – MFT Die-Namics – Lisa Johnson Designs – Circus Spectacular. You will be seeing more of that one here very soon! I also used the MFT Die-Namics Fancy Flourish die.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you’ve enjoyed checking out my project.
