Back to CAS again.

Hello all!
         Bit of an unimaginative title I know but my brain power seems to be in shut down mode at the moment and that's as good as it gets!  Anyway, it does what it says on the can, as they say.  I'm joining in with the current Anything Goes challenge at Saturated Canary.
                 I used '90's girl' and decided to stick to just 3 colours - lilac, pale green and orange (except for hair and skin).  These colours work together as they are triad colours on the colour wheel which means that they balance each other out.  I like to refer to a colour wheel as it really can make a difference in achieving a pleasing end result.  You can find plenty of these online which explain how to use colours in different ways.
         Once again, I managed to use up some scraps of patterned cardstock - only several thousand more to go!!  The butterflies were punched out (Martha Stewart punch) and coloured with Copics to match the girl's leggings and I added a simple sentiment on the side.


I would also like to enter this into the challenges at 613 Avenue Create , One Stop Craft , Crafty Cardmakers , Created with Love , Eureka and Marker Pop.


Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous coloring, Dawn! Love the palette you chose, too! Really terrific CAS design, and the 'flies are just perfect on it! :^)

I'll never use up my scraps. Never. And I don't care. Much.

Absolutely love how you colored this image. The hair is amazing. That is one thing I just can't get the hang of coloring.

This isn't a CAS card really, you have too much stuff on it for that. But, I love this not so CAS card; your colouring is fantastic on the image and I really like the touch of colour because the colours are awesome. Beautiful arrangement/design, and did I mention how much I love the colours?
Cheers :)Sandra

I have to hang my head in shame every time I look at my scrap box. I like the mix of papers you've used. The butterflies look gorgeous the way you colored them. Beautifully done Dawn! Hugs!

I hate to admit it, but I had this hairstyle in the 90s although I think my front hair stuck up a bit more than this! Love this cute image and your coloring and color choices are wonderful! Hugz!
