Before I announce the winner of my Copic Coloring Guide, Level 3: People giveaway, I wanted to share another sweet Saturated Canary image with you -- Ava (she was available temporarily as a free download, but you can find other great images at the Saturated Canary site, including some other free downloads). I've had her lying around almost completed for a few months and decided today she needed to be finished!
This sweet Ava image uses some of the techniques you'll find in the awesome Copic Coloring Guide, Level 3: People book! And I colored her like my youngest daughter would probably dress . . . if I let her, LOL! A definite hodge-podge of colors! If you haven't had the good fortune to win a copy of this book, Ellen Hutson LLC has all three levels of the Copic Coloring Guides in stock!
The reason I wanted to complete Ava is this:
As you know, October is the month of Breast Cancer Awareness and this year, the kind people down under at the Copic Oz (Australia) blog are doing their small part to help support and find a cure for this terrible disease. I'm sure most of us have been affected by Breast Cancer in some way, either personally or have seen a friend or family member fight it, so get a little creative and help them raise funds for the McGrath Foundation this month by joining us in the PINK CHALLENGE! For EVERY card entered on this Copic Oz blog post, $5 will go to the McGrath Foundation which does amazing work supporting those affected by Breast Cancer. The donations will be generously donated by X-Press Graph-X -- the Australia distributor of Copic products! Won't you help, by making a pink project (or linking to a previously-made pink project) and posting it there by 6pm Monday, October 29 Australia time (I believe that roughly converts to 3am Monday, US Central time zone!) . . . you still have time! And if they get 100 entries (they are currently at 92), X-Press Graph-X will DOUBLE their donation . . . Now THAT is FABULOUS!
Now, on to the winner of my Copic Coloring Guide, Level 3: People . . .
