I chose this little girl image from Saturated Canary called Summer Swing and you can find her here:
                                             Saturated Canary Summer Swing

I colored with Spectrum Noir and found a great tutorial on coloring curly hair and what colors to use on the Spectrum Noir's YouTube channel. You can find it here:
                                                Spectrum Noir Coloring Hair

Also, on Spectrum Noir's web site you can find hair color charts which really help (me.)   Just look here  and scroll down to the "Chart" section for the "Spectrum Noir Hair Color chart":

Thank you for stopping by!

  6. This is a fun, cheery card. She looks to really be enjoying her swing ride. Great coloring on the hair and the rest of the image. I love to swing even though I'm probably too old to do so. Enjoy your week.
