Not Just Cards Challenge for November 2019

Not Just Cards is having a new challenge this month. The theme for the November 2019 Challenge is "ANYTHING GOES".
To join in the fun, click on the following link:

Here is my creation for this month: 

I recently had a milestone I received a few presents that I very much appreciated, so I wanted to give out some cards that I have made. This is the first one!

I have digitally printed Waiter, there's a Parakeet in my teacup by the wonderful Marcella at Power Poppy on to X-Press It Blending card. I have used my Silhouette Cameo to cut it out and then I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:

  • blue cup & saucer - B12, B14, B16, B18
  • purple cup & saucer - BV11, BV13, BV17, BV08
  • yellow cup & saucer - Y00, Y11, Y13
  • flowers on yellow cup - RV63, RV66, RV69, YR18, E15
  • leaves on yellow cup - YG25, G07, G19
  • bird - BG10, BG13, BG15, BG18, Y00, Y11, Y13, Y15, YR18, E15
  • shadow - C0, C1, C2
  • background - BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV02 (outline)
I used Nautical Blue Memento ink for the sentiment from Nice Things to Say, also from Power Poppy and stamped it and adhered the coloured image on to a square white card from Envelope Solutions.

I used a few tips for colouring the bird from one of the Kit and Clowder Monthly Classes from the wonderful Alyce. Although unfortunately I have not had a lot of time recently as I started a new job, so it is a little rushed.

Here is a close up of the colouring:
