Floral Heart by SheepSki Designs for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #187 on the 7th of August, 2022

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for challenge #187, the 7th of August 2022 challenge for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog. I'm writing this on Sunday afternoon after I have just sent Kelly my image which is a bit delayed as I have been travelling this week for work and I had to deal with a family emergency yesterday and just have not had the energy to finish!

Anyway, here is my completed card:

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

I chose to use Floral Heart by SheepSki Designs, which I have digitally printed on to X-Press It Blending card and then coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • butterfly - B12 (body), BV00, BV20, BV13, BV17
  • pansies - Y15, V01, V04, V06
  • blue flowers - B12, B14, B16
  • yellow flowers - Y13, Y15, Y18, B14
  • blue/green flowers - BG11, BG53, BG57
  • pink flowers - RV00, RV10, RV14, RV17
  • small flowers - V22, V25
  • background - G0000, G000, G00
  • outline - BG57
I have cut out the coloured image using my paper cutter and then adhered to a white square card from Envelope Solutions.

The sentiments are from Short Stacks and Go Wild by Power Poppy (both sets look like they are discontinued) and they have been stamped using Nautical Blue Memento ink and my MISTI.

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 before it was cut and then after:
