Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #115 for the 6th of October, 2019

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.
Here is my card:

The sponsor for this challenge is:
and the prize is 3 images from their shop.

We were given Regina, which I have digitally printed on to X-Press It Blending Card and then cut out using my paper cutter (I found new blades the other day, but can't remember where I put them!) Then I have coloured with the following Copics using the Sepia technique and partly following the video by the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder:
  • skin - E50, E53, E55
  • eyes - E57, E59
  • hair - E53, E55, E57, E59
  • lips - E57, E59
  • clothing - E50, E53, E55, E57, E59
  • outline - E35
I have also used a softly glowing background technique again from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder. I trimmed the coloured image and adhered on to a Kraft card card from Envelope Solutions.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:

and then with the soft glow around the image.
