Glass Half Full from Polkadoodles - Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge for 4th of August, 2019

Hi All and Welcome to my post about my second card for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Here is my card:

The sponsor for this challenge is Polkadoodles:

and the prize is a £6.75 voucher.

I was given Glass Half Full and I have digitally printed it on to X-Press It Blending Card and then cut out using a KaiserCraft Decorative nesting frame die cut.
Then I have coloured with the following Copics:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
  • eyes - YG11, G21, G07, G29
  • lips - R20, R22
  • hair - W3, W5, W7, W9
  • flower in hair - RV00, RV63, RV66, YR14, YR27, E15
  • t-shirt - V22, V25, V28, V99
  • pants - R81, RV93, R56, R59
  • socks - W0, W1, W3
  • straw - RV93, R56, R59
  • glass - C0, C1-, C3, BG000, B00
  • floor - E31, E33, E35, E59 (floor); W3, W5, W7 (cast shadows)
  • background - V20, V22, BG000
  • outline - E59, BG02, W7
This is the first time that I have coloured hair black - I used the colours from the wonderful Alyce's from Kit and Clowder Skin and Hair class.

On to a white card from Envelope Solutions, I stamped the border stamp from Sage Advice from the wonderful Marcella from Power Poppy using my MISTI and Pear Tart Memento ink, I also stamped the two flower bunches from the same stamp set in the same ink - I then added a few colour touches with the following Copics:

  • purples - V12, V04, V28, V99
  • greens - BG90, BG93, BG99, YG07
  • pinks - RV25
I have then stamped the sentiment from Prairie Cheer also from Power Poppy in Nautical Blue Memento ink.
I adhered the coloured image to the card, trying to follow the sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

I have also stamped the border and a pot of sage on the inside of the card, again using my MISTI and Bamboo Leaves Memento ink.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:
