Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #117 for 3rd of November, 2019

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

Here is my card:

I was able to pick Christmas Poinsettia Girl by Lemon Shortbread and I have digitally printed it on to X-Press It Blending card and then cut out using my paper cutter.
Then I have coloured with the following Copics:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
  • hair - Y35, E55, YR27, E57, E59
  • eyes - G21, G07, G29
  • holly - G02, G05, YG09
  • berries - R56, R59
  • ribbons - R22, R24, R27, R29
  • poinsettia - R46, R29, R37, R59, RV99
  • yellow of poinsettia - Y38, E37
  • green of dress/coat - G21, G07, G29
  • red of coat - R24, R27, R29
  • background - BV0000
  • outline - BV00
I adhered the coloured image to a white card from Envelope Solutions.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Love to Craft Challenge LTCCB #40 - Anything Goes for November
Mix It Up Challenge MIUCB #31 - Anything Goes with a twist of watercolouring

Also remember that the 30 day colouring challenge at the Daily Marker is going on at the moment:

The idea is to try to encourage everyone to sit down for just a few minutes each day and just colour! Something that I find just calms my mind!

Thanks for looking!
