Enter If You Dare!!!! Beware I have DT News :)

Well right about now I could relate to the Expression....."When a door closes another one opens", LOL! Well it's my favorite part of the original quote.

YES!!! I have been invited to join the Saturated Canary DT familia!!!! 
I have to tell you when I got the message from non other than KRISTA!!! I mean when the actual Illustrator extends an invitation to represent her line of images, THAT'S BIG!!!! To me that's extra special. I couldn't deny her invite without any hesitation lol!

I mean come on, Saturated Canary Images are so freakin cute and who tells Krista, "NO", NOT ME LOL!!


I was doing the GANGNAM STYLE all day long, lol!

I also have the privilege to design with a gorgeous bunch of talented ladies :) some I already know and others I can't wait to know more about, yeah!!!

I still have butterflies in my stomach just thinking about it ha ha! 

Anywhoo I've been struck by my severe ugly migraines the past days. I had to tell Krista I wasn't going to be able to debut this weeks challenge. I just didn't have the will power to get up from bed. 
Let me tell you guys migraines are no fun, specially when you have to take care 3 little ones and a teen. For those who have chronic migraines can probably relate with me and know how bad it feels. 

Oh yeah back to what I was saying..... the night before the SC challenge went up live. 
I said, ACK.... let me try to jump in and see if I complete a card lol! 
I always thought I work best at the last minute and under pressure. Is that weird at all? 

 So I colored Elphie and btw she is available on the Saturated Canary online shop, a must have. Do you see how fun her hair is!!??
 I personally think Elphie's  hair is great Image for beginners to practice their layering technique. 

Krista made it so easy for us by giving her a light layer and yet gorgeous straight SEMI wavy hair. So If you want to start learning to do the whole pleating thing on hair. 
This is your image, just my opinion :) 

  I colored her the night before and the MIC Spooky Graveyard background scene the next day in the morning. I whipped up a card in no time and whala this is what my interpretation from the Inspiration picture for this challenge.

I try so hard getting a close up of her face.You can't see it well but she has a green undertone.The bottom of her dress is my FAVORITE color , it's like a cadet blue. Almost like a blue grayish and with a tiny tiny of green tone. I don't know how else to describe it lol! My scene was colored with my Spectrum Noir pens and you could find them right HERE.

I use this color a lot in my coloring if you notice  :) but I had hard time getting the colors to surface on the pictures. It kept getting a wash look and light coloring when it's really darker lol!  Oh well ....

OH OH I also colored on my Martha Stewart white lace ribbon with my Spectrum noir markers to coordinate. I colored right on top with BT4 and colored the trim edge with BGR1. That combo is the result of my favorite color too btw :)

That's all folks so If you have a moment to check out the rest of the team HERE. Please swing on by and leave them some love. Hopefully you get a chance to play with us too.

Enjoy the weekend and wish my son's team good luck please! He has his baseball championship game tomorrow morning for 1ST PLACE!!!! He might be the closing pitcher. Maybe not since he starting pitcher last week. NERVES ARE KILLING ME! TTYL :)
