Rose Bride Dollie by Ching Chou-Kuik for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #159 on the 6th of June, 2021

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for challenge 159, the June challenge of 2021 for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Here is my card:

Prize is 2 images!

I was given the digital stamp Rose Bride Dollie from Ching-Chou Kuik which I have digitally printed on to X-Press It Blending Card. I have used my paper cutter to cut around my image, followed by colouring with the following Copics:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E1, E04, R20
  • hair - E23, E25, E27, E29
  • eyes - BG45, BG57,  BG49
  • lips - RV55, RV66, clear Wink of Stella
  • roses - R81, R83, R85
  • leaves - YG11, G03, G19
  • ribbons - R81, R83, R85
  • pearls - R85, clear Wink of Stella
  • dress - C00, C0, C1, purple glitter pen, BV01, clear Wink of Stella
  • gloves - BV0000, BV000, BV00
  • wings - BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV01, clear Wink of Stella
  • background - V000, V01, V04, V05, V06, B000, B00, BG000, colourless blender, white gel pen, gold glitter pen
  • outline - BG49
I have adhered the coloured image on to a square card from Envelope Solutions.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes. The background is from one of the bonus classes.

Here is a close-up of the colouring before and after the addition of the background: hopefully you can see some sparkle!
