Flower Girl with Beetle

This is the second image I colored from my coloring books by Emmanuelle Colin.  They are available on Amazon (look for Avenue Mandarine Collectors Coloring Book..  My husband got them all for me for Christmas.  I didn't think I would be able to use Copics on this paper.  Surprisingly they worked very well.  I was starting to have a problem coloring her cheek.  I decided to stop and leave it alone.  I know what happens when I try to fix something.  It is usually disastrous!  I got all my DT cards for March done so I plan on having some fun the rest of the month.  I haven't decided what I am going to do with it yet.  I took the first photo in daylight and the second around dinner time with the same lighting in the room.  I like the daylight one much better.

I am going to enter this in the following challenges:

Morgan's Art World - Anything Goes
Digi Choosday - Anything Goes
Crafting Happiness - Flowers 
Jan's Digi Stamps - Anything Goes
Dragonfly Dreams - Include a Flower
Challenge Up Your Life - Blooming Flowers

  4. You are the Colormeister! Perfection! I dunno, I do like the left side of the one snapped at dinnertime, too bad for the shadow on the right side. I think you did the cheek well! I want to thank you for the birthday card you sent me. What a gorgeous easel card! So delicate and you colored her up perfectly. I've put it on my foyer table next to my Birthday Balloons deco. Happy Humpday and have fun the rest of the month, you earned it by getting your DT work done! xoxo

    Hugs Diane
