To Us from Hetty Clare for Colour Crazy Challenge on the 16th of July, 2021

At Colour Crazy Challenge for the 16th of July, 2021, we are sponsored by Hetty Clare Art.

Here is my card:

As I mentioned, the sponsor for this challenge iHetty Clare Art. Helen has aa very wide variety of images and the one that I chose was To Us.

I have digitally printed the To Us image on to X-Press It Blending card and then coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
  • hair - E19
  • red - R22, R24, R27, R29
  • blue - B12, B14, B16, B18
  • white - C0, C1, C3
  • t-shirt - YR12, YR15, YR18
  • hats - E31, E33, E35
  • bottle/glass - B0000, B000, silver glitter pen for the lid, purple glitter pen for the label
  • drink - Y0000
  • grass - G20, YG11, YG23, YG25, YG67
  • sky - Y000, Y11, Y23, RV000, RV00, RV10, B0000, B000, B41, colourless blender
  • outline - B18
I have cut the image using my paper cutter and adhered it on to a white card from Envelope Solutions.

I have drawn some inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her awesomMonthly Classes.

For the Celebrate sentiment on the side, I have die cut three dies the Celebrate You die from the May 2015 Club La-La Land Crafts kit. I used only the Celebrate word in a brown, black and red cardstock and adhered them together with some glue. Then adhered the stack to the card. I outlined the diecuts and tried to highlight the word with a red glitter pen.

Here is a close-up of the colouring, both finished and at the beginning:

I had a bit of a problem with R27 leaking over my image and around my workspace - I went to work with red ink all over my hands! Hopefully I have covered it up on the image!

I am happy I chose this image and coloured it with a sunrise, as after watching the Wimbledon Tennis Saturday night into the wee hours and seeing Ash Barty win, then finding out that Dylan Alcott had also won - this is how we would feel the next morning - celebrating our Australian tennis stars!! 😂
