Flowers in Her Hair

I coloured in this digital image about 4 weeks ago but did not post because I wanted to supply the link to the original artist but after four weeks of searching and asking on different forums I have not be able to find out who it is drawn by. All I remember is that it is a male artist and he shares three images I think. I have two and have coloured both but this one is made into a card.

Most times when we download images they are just an outline and the rest is up to us. In this instance the image has also had lines and shadows added which means it is even easier to colour in. A great one to start with if you are thinking of colouring.

Because of all the lines the hair my colouring looks sensational. The same with the flowers as they already have some grey shadow. I totally enjoyed colouring her in and think she is just exquisite.
I plan to put her in a few challenges in the hope that someone will be able to tell me who the artist is and I can add the link.

This is one problem when such talented people let us download their images. When the image is compressed into a ZIP file at least then it comes with the artists name and conditions of use; in other instances the artists add their names within the curves of the image so again easy to acknowledge.
But I do have a folder that contains images I have purchased or been able to download for personal use with no ownership markings and because I have so many and its been many years it is hard to remember who sold/gave what.

Okay off my soap box here.

After colouring in with copics,  and I have to say I am really really pleased with my colouring of her skin. I used a rectangle die cut that cuts and adds stitches to both the inside rectangle and the frame so once with the coloured image and once with the metallic paper. Added both to a white card base and felt that nothing else's needed. No gems, sequins or sentiment, perfect as it is.

Okay I would like to enter this in:

Okay heres hoping someone will be able to help out.

Thanks you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

Well you certainly made him proud-where ever he is! Maybe you could right click on the image in your files and choose properties. Sometimes it is marked with the original artist that way. Good Luck!

Love this beautifully colored creation!!!
