Peaceful Easter by The Paper Shelter for Little Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge LPOCF #179 on the 3rd of April, 2022

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for challenge #179, the 3rd of April 2022 challenge for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Anyway, here is my completed card:

I also took a photo from the top of my new Shotbox with the card flat:

Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter and I was the one choosing the image!

So as it is so close to Easter, I chose Peaceful Easter - I love the girl holding the bunny! I have digitally printed the image on to X-Press It Blending card and then coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
  • lips - RV66, Wink of Stella
  • hair - E13, E15, E17, E19
  • purple - V12, V15, V17 and V04, V06, V09
  • green - YG61, YG63, YG67 and G40, G43, G46
  • blue - B12, B14, B16
  • pink - RV14, RV17, RV19
  • orange - YR20, YR12, YR14, YR16
  • brown - E84, E87, E89 (branches) and E53, E55, E57, E59 (bunny)
  • background - BG000, BG10
I have also used some glitter pens on the eggs.
I have cut out the coloured image and adhered it on to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.

I have die cut Happy Easter using a new die from Kokorosa Studio and then coloured it with V17.
I originally placed everything on to a smaller card, but it didn't seem to all fit:

So I found a bigger card:

Once I had the layout, I adhered the coloured image using double-sided tape and the Happy Easter 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 is a photo close-up of the colouring - you may even see some sparkle:
