Not Just Cards - September 2019 Challenge

Not Just Cards is having a new challenge this month. The theme for the September 2019 Challenge is "ANYTHING GOES".

Here is my colouring for this month: 

This card is the one that I gave my sister for her birthday in July.
Here is an image of the inside of the card - pretty much the first time I have done something inside a card! I need to do it more.

I have stamped using my MISTI and Bamboo Leaves Memento ink, the big image from O Hoppy Day by the wonderful Marcella at Power Poppy on to X-Press It Blending card. I used Bamboo Leaves and Pear Tart Memento ink inside, as well Nautical Blue Memento ink for the sentiment on the outside and inside of the card, which is a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.
I have coloured the main images with the following Copics markers:

  • hops and leaves - YG00, YG13, YG23, YG25, YG67, E13 (hops)
  • barley - E41, E43, E44
  • background - BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV01 (outline)

I had to play around a bit with colouring of the various plants, so here are a few other images:

In this one I tried BG90, BG93, BG96 and BG99 for the leaf....

I would like to enter this into a few challenges:
