Saturated Canary - Red, White and Blue

Hi everyone, I'm back again for my second post of the day.  It's been quite some time since I have been able to post twice in one day but, here I am and this time I am bringing you a project using an image from Saturated Canary, Wendy.  I swear, I could sit around day after day and color and create and just live in my craft room, that is if the rest of the world didn't exist.  But, since they do I have to leave time for the rest of my life, which is why a second post in one day is rare.  Besides, I tend to go a little overboard in my thinking of what I would like to do for my projects and they end up taking me longer to make than I would like.  Sometimes that is a good thing, other times, not so much!

Since the challenge at Saturated Canary is Red, White and Blue this time around I decided I wanted to use one of her little girl images.  This image, Wendy, reminded of a little girl who might be sitting watching a Fourth of July parade or maybe even waiting for some fireworks.  When I was coloring her, that is the image I had in mind and it guided me to where I wanted to put my red, white and blue colors.

I also used the sketch from The Sweet Stop challenge blog for my project so I will be entering my card into the challenge there as well.  

I'm also going to enter my project into the challenge over at the Color Me Creative copic site.  The challenge there this time around is big hair and Wendy does have very long hair for sure!

Materials I Used For My Project:
Copic Markers - R27, R24, R22, R20, B28, B26, B24, B21, E49, E59, E39, E34(hair), E13, E11, E01, E000, R21 (skin)
CM start punches
Wild Orchid Flowers
MS border punch
Glossy Accents
Spellbinder's Nestabilities Classic Large circle and Scalloped circle dies

Here's a close up of my red, white and blue cutie.
