Winter Westies from Fred She Said for Winter Wonderland on the 3rd of July, 2020

At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Helen.
Welcome to our seventh challenge for 2020.

Our theme is:

Hip to be SQUARE

So here is my card:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme of being a square card!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Fred She Said:

Fred She Said Designs offers a wide variety of digital products with a floral flair and cute characters too - digis, pre-coloured images, papers, sets, Fred's Flower Kits and even digital cutting files.
Have some fun with Fred! 

I chose Winter Westie for my image, which I combined one image with the scarf and one without,  then digitally printed on to X-Press It blending card and then cut out using my paper cutter. 
I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • fur - C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, R30, R83
  • green - G05, G09, G07
  • red - R35, R37, R39
  • background - BV0000, BV000, BV00
  • outline of image and sentiment - BV00
  • lettering - purple Wink of Stella
I then adhered the coloured image on to a white card from Envelope Solutions. The sentiment is from Chickadee in Barberry by the wonderful Marcella at Power Poppy.
As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:
