Pet Loving Marci for Love to Craft Challenge Blog #63 for October 2021

For my October challenge with Love to Craft Challenge Blog I chose to make a shaker card using some of the stamps and dies that I have received over the last months.

Here is my card for this month:

I have coloured Pet Loving Marci and the little bunny from the April 2021 Club La-La Land Crafts kit by the wonderful Irina from La-La Land Crafts.
I have stamped using Fade ink on to Xpress It Blending Card, then coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20, 100
  • lips - RV55, RV66
  • hair - YR14, YR18, E08, E18
  • blue - B93, B95, B97, B99
  • pink - RV10, RV13, RV17, RV19
  • yellow - Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17
  • fish - YR12, YR15, YR18
  • bag - BG000, B00, BG02, RV10, Y11, E000
  • rabbit - E13, E15, E17, E18, 100, white gel pen, R20
  • sand/castle in fish bowl - E33
  • seaweed in fish bowl - YG13, G19
I also die cut the fish bowl out of pale blue card stock and made it into a shaker card!!
Once I finished colouring, I fussy cut the images and adhered them along with the fish bowl and accessories on to a white square card from Envelope Solutions.
I then stamped the sentiment using Nautical Blue on to the drawer of the retro table from September 2020 Club La-La Land Crafts Kit.

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

As I coloured and organised the card I took a few progression shots:
