A day to remember

Hello everyone!
It's Kathrin here today sharing another creation with you. 

I decided to do an "all-occasion" card. And the Parade image by Saturated Canary is just perfect for it. 
With the saying I just need to add a date and so I could use it for any occasion I want to congrat someone for reaching a special goal or for a special day.

I went with mainly blues to color the image in.
The blues I choose are from the BG color family. I love the turquoise touch these have.

Here's a close up of the colored image:

I used the same combo of browns that I used for the hair to also color the shoes, chicken and turtle. And I used a more greyish tones of BG for the turtle.

Usually I mat the papers on my cards but I printed the image quite large and so I just did some distressing to the edges.

These are the colors I used for the coloring:

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, E13
Cheeks: R00, R20, R22
Hair/Browns: E50, E21, E25, E29, E49 and E23 in addition where I blended the colors like for the shoes
Dress, bow etc: BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG02, BG05, BG07
turtle: BG90, BG93, BG96
greys: C00, C02, C08, 100
shadow: B000

Have a great day everyone!
