It's Tuesday....And it's challenge time at Top Tip Tuesdays :) Our sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful 'Sweet Stamp Store'. 
We didn't have a sponsor image to use this challenge, but for me that was great as it meant I finally got a chance to colour up my first ever Saturated Canary Image! This adorable image is called Ava and I had soooooo much fun with her :)

Our theme this fortnight is CAS and so to keep it as CAS as possible, I printed out Ava, along with a sentiment onto a sheet of card and coloured her up and that was it! :p

I coloured Ava with my Promarkers

Tip: Outlining your coloured image can really help make it pop from the page, even if you barely notice the outline. I tend to stick to a light blue or natural colour, like pastel beige or tea green. Some people use a dotting method, I literally just draw around the edges...Simple!

I must admit I was sooooooo happy with how she turned out and I can't stop staring at her and smiling :))))) I've been like a little kid bouncing around...hehe...

Hope you love her as much as I do :)
