Mal... don't worry about credit with me, unless you want to credit WC for publishing it. I like this lighter version a lot, and I bet the "middle version" is even better. Scanners can be so frustrating!
Tammy... Good going! Kind of hard to do without frisket, but that considered, you did well! It looks like maybe you introduced some green into the pinks of the water, and that can cause a mudddy look. If it really bothers you, try to "lift" some of it with a clean damp brush..let dry, then drop in some light color. Don't scrub, or the fibers will get disturbed and not accept new color well.
