Squigglefly digital images - VERY cool!!!!

These 4 cards contain digital images from http://www.squigglefly.com/ --> go check them out, they have some really cute images!!! And the nice thing about these images, is you can make them any size you want which is great for practicing shading and colouring with copics. You get 4 images to download for under $4...and you can print out as many as you like.... not bad!!!
I coloured this "hip" chick with copics - I had so much fun colouring her!!! I really worked on the skin colour and shading on this one!! The foil DP is from a DCWV stack called Blossoms and Butterflies - cute eh? The ribbon is some taffeta ribbon I got in a ribbon exchange awhile ago but didn't want to use it (that is the HOARDER in me coming out!!LOL) The inside of the card says "So glad we're friends" (from an SU set called Best Yet)
This one was fun! It reminds me of Alice in Wonderland!!! The sentiment is from Best Yet as well, and thought it fit well with this card!! I coloured this one with copics as well, focusing on my shading!!

I like this image so much - it reminds me of when I was little, sitting in Dad's big chair reading a book!!! The DP is from an Autumn Leaves adhesive mat pack called "foof-a-la" (funny eh??) I coloured her with copics too. The sentiment is from "Ticketed" by Autumn Leaves.
I am particularly pleased with how this one turned out! This image is a free download but I was scared to colour it because hummingbirds are so beautiful and colourful, I wasn't sure I could do it justice!!! I used B05 and YG13 - I'm sure you aren't supposed to mix the colour families like that, but I'm glad I did - it turned out pretty good. I started out with the blue (B05) and put it randomly around the feathers, then went over it with the green (YG13) to blend the colours together. I LOVE it!!! My first intention was to try my Twinkling H2Os on this guy, but I've never used them before and I didn't want to wreck him!!! LOL I added stickles to the purple flowers to give it some bling...does that help?? LOL
Those are all the images I got from squigglefly - but I think I will be back for more...they are great!!!! I still haven't quite mastered making them smaller before I print them, but I'm working on it!!! :)
Have a great week - I only have 4 1/2 days of work until I'm off for Christmas vacation!!! YIPPPEEEEE!! I cannot wait!!!!!!

Catt I am so impressed! You did a magnificent coloring job on all of these, but your hummingbird is really something else. I tried to watercolor the humminbird with my twinkling h2os and ended up messing it up. I haven't tried it again yet. I just love the cards you've made! You know if you send in cards made with squigglefly images you get in a drawing for a free download! Thanks for the award too! I'm posting about it on my blog tomorrow. :)
