Blanche–Saturated Canary

You know how it is, you sit down to craft and a card just seems to take forever, your creative mojo seems to have taken a hike to a different part of the universe, you try this and that to make the card sing but you still aren’t happy with the end result. Everyone says that it’s lovely but you still aren’t happy with it.

Well that is how I have felt for weeks now. I can sit and colour for hours and hours but the making of the card has been a pain. That is until today…….

I coloured up my image, Blanche from Saturated Canary Digi’s  sat at my craft desk and everything just fell into place. I think this image has a striking resemblance to Sophia Loren with the Italian Chić don’t you?


Coloured with Copic Markers and Prisma pencils


Memory Box border dies and gems from Mei Flower (love their gems and pearls)


And Sophia Loren

Super card Jak, Love it! I have this stamp, but have not coloured her yet. I laughed at your note about resembling Sophia Loren. When Krista was asking for suggestions, I suggested Sophia as I could see the resemblance!

This is a gorgeous card Jak. Love the colours and I think this would be just the job for one of my male friends!

Love how you have finished the card.
