Happy Hour by Hetty Clare for Little Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #211 on the 6th of August, 2023

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for challenge #211, the 6th of August 2023 challenge for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Here is my completed card:

Our sponsor for this challenge is Hetty Clare:
prize: 2  images

I chose to use Happy Hour, which I have digitally printed the image on to X-Press It Blending card and then coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • yellow - Y11, Y15, Y19
  • black - C5, C7, C9
  • white - C00, C0, C1, colourless blender
  • strawberry - YG03, G24, G28, R20, R22, R24, R29, R59
  • glass - C00, C0, C1, C3
  • drink - RV00, RV91, RV93
  • umbrella - B14, B16, B18, Y11, Y15, Y19
  • ice - BG0000, BG000
  • table - BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV01
  • outline - B18
I have cut out the image using my paper cutter and a scalloped border cutter (Creative Memories) and adhered it to a piece of the Celebrate Paper Pack from La-La Land Crafts and then on to a white square card from Envelope Solutions.

I have stamped a sentiment from the August 2019 Club La-La Land Crafts in Nautical Blue Memento ink.

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 I cut it:
