Beautiful Seahorse - Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #119 for the 1st of December, 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:
Fabrika Fantasy

and the prize is 3 images from their shop.

I picked Beautiful Seahorse, which is one of the images from one of their colouring books. They have some amazing images, it was difficult to pick only one!
Anyway, I have digitally printed on to X-Press It Blending Card and then cut out using my paper cutter. Then I have coloured with the following Copics:
  • pinks - RV10, RV04, RV66
  • purples - V01, V04, V09
  • yellows - Y00, Y35, Y38
  • blue/greens - BG000, BG45, BG49
  • eye - G21, G05, G28, B39
  • starfish - Y35, Y38, YR04, YR18
  • coral - R22, R24, R29
  • tube coral - V22, V25, V28
  • fish - YG03, YG07, YG09, B39, white gel pen
  • shadow - C1
  • background - Y32, BG000, B00, BG23, B14, B16, B18
  • outline - B18
I have adhered the coloured image on to a square white card from Envelope Solutions and kept it very simple, but loosely used one of the November sketches from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2:

I die cut two sea horses from La-La Land Crafts in pink and yellow glitter core cardstock. Then also die cut a couple of fish from the Fishes die set that was originally part of the August 2017 Club La-La Land Crafts.
The background came from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes - this one is from the July 2019 Monthly Class.

Here is a close-up of the colouring :
