Friendship - Colour Crazy Challenge for the 23rd of November, 2018

Well I was invited to stay on at Colour Crazy Challenge and I decided to do just that as I was having so much fun! So I have found some time to colour two of the images that we had available from Bugaboo Stamps and made a card following a sketch.
So here is my card:

I have used Bobblehead Reindeer and Polar Bear and digitally printed them on to X-Press It Blending Card. I tried to use my Silhouette Cameo to cut them out, but something happened and the polar bear's hand was slightly cut off! So I aborted that cutting and had to fussy cut - so totally not a fan of fussy cutting! I think my Silhouette may need a software upgrade, but I have no time to work it out, so I will keep trying! SO hopefully I have covered up the fact that the polar bear is missing part of his hand by the reindeer!! :)

Anyway, I have used the following Copics markers to colour the bobblehead reindeer and the polar bear:
  • reindeer - E40, E43 (chest), E21, E23, E25, E27, E29
  • hooves - E40, E43, E44, E47
  • nose and ears - RV10, RV11
  • antlers - E71, E74, E77
  • background - BG10, BG01
  • polar bear - C00, C0, C1, C3, colourless blender
  • feet pads, nose and ears - C0, RV10, RV11
  • scarf - BG02, BG05, BG07
  • background - BG10, BG01
  • outline of paper - E23
  • outline of sentiment piece - YG97
I have followed the latest sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

I used a paper from Holly Bright by KaiserCraft and a sentiment piece as well that I stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink with a sentiment from Cozy Cupfuls by Marcella at Power Poppy. I then adhered everything to a white card from Envelope Solutions.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:
