Good Fortune for Love to Craft Challenge Blog LTCCB #55 for February 2021

I am now a member of the Love to Craft Challenge Blog Design Team, which is way cool as I can use everything that I have been collecting and stuff out of my stash that I have never used before! 
Love to Craft Challenge Blog challenges are monthly, going live at 4:00 AM Mountain Time (which is 9:30 pm here in Adelaide, SA) on the first day of every month and run until 4:00 PM Mountain Time (9:30 am here in Adelaide, SA) on the last day of the month. We always play Anything Goes! So please come over to the blog and join in the fun! :)

So this is my first challenge and as I have been collecting a whole bunch of stamps and dies from La-La Land Crafts, I have decided to try and use them all! So I have chosen parts of the September 2020 release that I received in the Summer Box from last year. I used the Good Fortune Clear Stamp Set, the Asian Landscape Border Die, the Flying Cranes Die and the Asian Fusion Paper Pack.

Anyway, here is my card:

I have stamped three of the images from Good Fortune using Black Tuxedo Memento ink on X-Press It Blending Card.
Then I have coloured with the following Copics pens:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11
  • hair - W5, W7, W9
  • reds - R32, R35, R37, R39
  • yellows - Y21, Y23, Y26
  • greys - N0, N1, N3, N5, N7
  • dragon - R05, R17, R27, R59, YG00, YG11, YG13, YR23, YR24, YR27, white gel pen
  • outline - C1, C3
I fussy cut out the images and then wrote Happy New Year in Japanese in black glitter pen on the scroll.
I stamped two of the sentiments from the Good Fortune set using Love Letter Memento ink and my MISTI on to a white slimline card from Envelope Solutions. Then adhered a piece of one of the papers from Asian Fusion Paper Pack which I outlined in R39. I have die cut the Asian Landscape Border and the Flying Cranes from scrap card stock in my stash, then adhered everything to the card using both double-sided tape and glue.

I have taken inspiration for the colouring from La-Land Crafts Blog - especially Cristena on Day 2 of the Showcase for the dragon and Cheryl on Day 5 of the Showcase for the clothing colours.

I actually stamped all four images from the Good Fortune set - but the girl with the lamp didn't fit on the card! So look out for another card in the future!

Here is a close-up of the colouring:
