Amelia and Oliver

Happy Saturday!  Have you ever made too many cards??  Well sometimes I get carried away, I love colouring the hair on The Greeting Farms images.  So I end up with a bunch of stamped images with coloured hair and nothing else.  LOL
For the first card I thought I would venture out of my comfort zone and colour Amelia's hair a strawberry red.  I know I didn't go to far out of my zone but I did use a really red rather than say a strawberry blond or something like that.  I'm glad I did, I think the colour turned out great!
For the second card I used the aborable Oliver.  Now I can never decide if I should add colour to the part of the image that the fish bowl shows or not.  So I decided not too so the fish would stand out better.
Both these cuties are in one stamp set and are only $16.00.  Aren't they adorable??  If you want to check this set out for yourself stop here.  There are 3 sets of Oliver and Amelia doing different things.

Oh and I actually wrote down what colours I used to colour Amelia's hair so I can share with you
The reds for her hair are
R43,46 and 59
