Fred She Said Easter Chick - Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #127 for the 1st of March, 2020

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:
Fred She Said Designs

Prize is a $10 Gift Certificate

I chose the Easter Chicky Digi set which I have combined 3 chickies and some flowers from the set and then digitally printed on to X-Press It Blending Card. I have cut a frame around my image with my paper cutter, followed by colouring with the following Copics:
  • chickies - Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17
  • shells - B12, B14, B16, B18, RV17
  • flowers - RV10, RV14, RV17, RV19
  • flower centres - YR24, YR27
  • leaves - G00, G14, G17
  • background - BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV02, colourless blender
  • outline - BV02
I have adhered the coloured image on to a white square card from Envelope Solutions. Then coloured (B16, BV02, Wink of Stella) and adhered the sentiment from Waiter, There's a Parakeet in My Teacup stamp set by the awesome Marcella at Power Poppy.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes.

Here is a close-up of the colouring :
