Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #127 - My first Post as new DT Member

Good day everyone,
I'm so happy to show you my first entry into the Fab 'n' Funky Challenge as a DT Member.  What a great week to start because the theme is my favourite style.... "Cute or Girlie".  I hope you like what I've created and will play along with us in the challenge.  

I used a Saturated Canary image called Nevaeh.  Now, she is not new, but this is the first time I've coloured her.   I think she is so girlie...and cute :)   I tried something different when colouring her dress...I used Prismacolor pencils with solvent when I was finished with my copics.  You just need to remember not to go back with your copics because you will ruin the nib!

Here is a list of the dies I've used:

                              Memory Box Cherry Blossom for the flower
                              Memory box Catalina Border
                             Spellbinders  Antique Frame and Accents
DP is SU Baja Breeze and edges have been sponged with Baja Breeze ink.

Hair:  E49, E44, E42, E40
Dress:  YR02, YR00, YR000
BG72,  BG70,  small amount of BG75
Prismacolor Pencils:  Orange
White dots made with Sharpie Poster-Paint Extra Fine Point

I will be entering the following challenges:
Make It Monday Challenge #95 - Always Anything Goes
Tammy's Scrapin Corner #16 - Anything Goes with Any Artist
Party Time Tuesday #74  - Anything Goes
ROBIN UPDATE...poor bird was so confused when I put the umbrella down. He had only put up a few twigs - the rest he had on the table in preparation.  I relocated them to another spot in the garden.  We have several large, mature trees and cedars on our property... why the table umbrella?   He must have heard I like to cook and didn't want to be late for dinner :)   

I also want to extend a big warm welcome to my new followers.  Your lovely words of encouragement mean so much to me - thank you so very much.   Hugs, Pat K.
