Lilo's Fun Friday #33

Happy Friday everyone!!

Woo Hoo!!  Who of you can't wait for the weekend to start?  I'm still trying to catch up, so I definitely am! hahaha!  It's been a while since my last LFF, so let's catch up with a Saturated Canary share.  The other day the awesome illustrator of Saturated Canary, Krista, posted on FB a link to some really amazing freebies.  Make sure to become a follower (PLEASE don't be a dweeb!) before you download the freebies, which you won't have any troubles becoming, she's got some awesomely cute designs.  I have been a fan of SC for quite some time, just haven't had a chance to play with all the images I've purchased yet.  And now she's gone rubber!!  O lordy, there goes the bank account!  Lol!! 

Today I wanted to share two different versions of colors using the adorable Ava.  I've been dabbling with red hair lately, trying to get as many shades under my belt as possible.  So here's a simple tag and Ava with reddish hair and green eyes.

I went with a different but fun color combo of light pink, aqua and gray for her outfit.  I love how it turned out.  Here is a close up of Ava as a red head.

I'm still practicing and will definitely keep trying to get that hair down.  I think it would be easier if I printed her out a bit bigger, but I just went with it and I think it turned out pretty cute.

Next up is a brown haired version of her with smoky brown eyes.  (Love how you can color us the eyes to any shade in the Copic universe!)  What a difference the colors make using the same image, yea?  Going for a red, white and blue theme I am sending this one to my Secret Sister for July.  She doesn't know it yet, but I almost kept this one! hahaha!! 

It's really amazing how just a change of colors can transform the same image to look different!  I'm sooo lovin' her outfit!  I also made that stick pin accessory!  Go me!  (hahaha)  I kept the design really simple.  Love how the dark blues pop here.  I hope my SSS likes it.  Here's a close up...

I actually love this shot right here!!  I think I will go in a little more with some darker browns at the roots, but for the most part I am content with it.   See the balloon?  Yep I used Copics to make that heart.  Nice how it turned out yea?  hehehe..

Okie dokie, time for me to say... Happy Aloha Friday and Mahalo for stopping by!!  Have a great weekend and I hope you all get crafty!!

Can you hardly stand it, I can't wait for the rubber stamps to come out!!! I have so many SCs that I haven't even had time to color yet!!! I love how both of these turned out. The deep red hair is really fun, and the red/white/blue card is super eye-catching!! Great job sister!

Adorable Leanne! I love the image, especially with red hair. If I had to pick one over the other I just wouldn't be able too!
Have a great day,
