Really like this Saturated Canary image called "Copica" with her little apron holding all her Copics!  
With the challenge being "Totally Teal", I chose my Blue-green colors first and then matched up my background papers and card stock.  After coloring the focal image, I did use the lower numbered blue-greens for the shadow around her so that the teal in her clothes would still stand out.  I added dots with my Micron Pen around her "halo" to add some sparkle to the image.
For embellishments, I paper pierced along the bottom intending to hand sew there with teal threads, but this did not look right at all, took that out and used an embossing pen to draw in the stitching and heat embossed.  Still looks wonky - but chose to keep going.  I added three teal buttons with teal waxed linen bows tied thru them and a small tag with "Create" on it.

As I usually do, I carried the left over DP inside for continuity of theme, and more importantly, to use up the scraps!  I LOVE doing that, no matter the amount, size or shape that is left - I like to use it up so it doesn't end up in the pile of scraps on my desk!
