What a treat to play with a "Canadian" image! She is colored with my Copic Markers on X-press it Blending Card paper.  A fabulous opportunity to work with my reds. I used R35,37 and 59 for all the red areas. The browns were my E23,25 and 27. I used W00,1 and 3 for the "white" areas of my flag.

The finishing touch was using my airbrush. I airbrushed all the edges of my white cardstock with one of my favorite colors....E31! Love it!

A very simple layout, no fancy dies or anything like that. Just a corner rounder and a little patterned paper that was at the bottom of my drawer (and it is a deep drawer).

Now I am off to see what the other girls did with Moka Karen....here is the list of them, be sure to stop by and leave them some comment love :)

Thanks Taylor for including me today!
