Riding by to say Hi with Tricycle Marci

Here is my latest creation using inspiration from Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #171 for the colours: blue and yellow, Cupcake Craft Challenge #203 and Paper Makeup Stamps Challenge #47 for the theme: The Great Outdoors and Endless Summer, respectively.
So here is my card:

Here is the inspirational photo from Cupcake Inspirations:

I have used a square white card and envelope from Envelope Solutions.
I have digitally stamped Tricycle Marci, the sentiment "Riding by to say Hi" and the fence from La-La Land Crafts and the sun from Jen's Sunshine, part of a set of digital stamps for charity from Paper Makeup Stamps.

I have printed on X-press It paper and coloured everything with Copics pens.
The Copic pens I used are:

  • Tricycle Marci 
    • skin: E50, E51 and lipstick Spica pen
    • hair - E31, E35, E37
    • shorts/headband - B02, B05
    • top/hair bow - Y11, Y15, Y17
    • bike - BG000, BG10, BG15, C1, C3, C5
    • basket - E31, E35
    • panda - C1, C3, C5, R20, lipstick Spica pen
  • Fence
    • wood - E31, E35, E37
    • stones - W1, W3, W5, E35
    • grass - YG63, YG67
  • Sun
    • Y11, Y15, Y17
    • cheeks - R02
    • tongue - E02
Everything was coloured on the edge with B00.

I also made an addition to this card, as I thought it was lacking something in the middle!

I digitally stamped the sunflowers from La-La Land Crafts, then coloured them with the following Copic pens:
  • stems/leaves - YG03, YG63
  • flowers - Y02, YR07, Y28, E37
I think next time, I'll add the sunflowers and fence together before I print! Too much fussy cutting!! :)

This card is for sale on Etsy in my shop: JemLou Productions. Here is the listing: Riding By to Say Hi! Card.
This card will also be displayed in a few places:  La-La Land Customer Gallery and the La-La Land Crafts Facebook page.
