Wimbledonna by Julia McNeill Crafts for Little Patch Of Crafty Friends Challenge #177 on the 6th of March, 2022

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for challenge #177, the 6th of March 2022 challenge for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Anyway, here is my completed card:

I had coloured the rhinestones, but forgot to add them before I posted the photo below on the Little Patch of Crafty Friends website!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Julia McNeill Crafts, it is the first time that I have used her stamps, but I am seeing them more ofter now:

Prize: 1 Full Digital Set

I chose to use the Wimbledonna in honour of Ash Barty winning the Australian Open this year, which I have digitally printed on to X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured with the following Copics:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
  • eyeshadow/lips - glitter pen
  • hair - E13, E15, E17, E59
  • headband - B66, Wink of Stella
  • W of headband - glitter pen
  • purple - V12, V15, V17
  • blue - B63, B66, B69
  • racket head - V20, V22, V25, V28, BV20, BV23, BV25
  • strawberries - R24, R27, R29, E37, G14, YG21
  • tennis balls - Y11, Y13, Y15, G14
  • background - BG0000, BG000 BG01, colourless blender
  • grounding - C1, C3, C5
  • outline - V17
I have cut out the coloured image and adhered it on to a white slimline card from Envelope Solutions.

Then I coloured some rhinestones from KaiserCraft with B69 and V17, then adhered them to the card using Art Glitter Glue.

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

Here are some photos close-up of the colouring - you may even see some sparkle:
