Sunflower Bouquet by Twinkle Land Designs for Little Patch of Crafty Friends #169 on the 7th of November, 2021

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for challenge #169, the 7th of November challenge for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Anyway, here is my card:

The sponsor for this challenge is:
I chose Sunflower Bouquet, 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:
  • sunflowers - Y21, Y15, Y38, E13
  • insides of sunflowers - E71, E74, E77, E08
  • blue flowers - B12, B14, B16, YR09
  • ladybug - R24, R27, R59
  • background/shadow - BV20
  • outline - B16
I have adhered the coloured image on to a square white card from Envelope Solutions.

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

Here is a close-up of the colouring:
