Summer Citrus


For my card today I decided to use summer citrus colours - orange, green and yellow.  This is not a colour combination that I use very often, but I always think it's good to stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone from time to time.

Here's my card

The image is called Ava and she is a freebie Digi Image from Saturated Canary - You can find her HERE.  

I coloured her using the following Copic Markers

Skin - E0000, E000, E00, E21 and R20 (cheeks)
Eyes - B23
Hair - Y21, Y23, Y26, E50
Balloon - Y11, Y15, Y17
Clothes - YR00, YR02, YR04, YR07, YG01, YG03, YG06, YG09, Y11, Y15, Y17, R27, C0

Here's a close-up of the coloured image
