Mycroft by Dr. Digi Stamps for Little Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #213 on the 3rd of September, 2023

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for challenge #213, the 3rd of September 2023 challenge for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Here is my completed card:

Our sponsor for this challenge is Dr. Digi's House of Stamps:
prize: 2  images

I chose to use Mycroft, which I have digitally printed the image on to X-Press It Blending card and then coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • cat - C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, E41, E43, R20
  • fish - YR02, YR04, YR09
  • castle under the fish - YG21, YG23, YG25
  • water - BG0000, BG000, BG01, B0000, B000. B00, B01
I have fussy cut out Mycroft and his puddle of water, then stamped the Comfy Chair from the August 2020 Club La-La Land Crafts kit on to some yellow patterned paper from my stash using Rich Cocoa Memento ink. Then I have die cut the Retro Lamp, Retro Desk and Desk Accessories from the September 2020 Club La-La Land Crafts kit on to some white cardstock before colouring with the following Copics markers:
  • books - BG01, R14, BV08, C7
  • desk/lamp base - E23, E25, E27
  • lamp/cup - YR02, YR04, YR09
  • monitor - C5
  • pencil cup/ruler - BG0000, BG000
  • pen - E43
  • picture on monitor - G21, G24, G28, E25, E27, B000
To put my card together, I have cut and adhered a piece of the Merry & Bright Paper Pack from La-La Land Crafts and on to a white square card from Envelope Solutions.
Then I have adhered the lamp, monitor, cups, ruler, pen, desk and chair with double-sided tape and glue on to the card, followed by Mycroft and the books with foam tape. The little water droplets I have adhered with glue.

I could not really think of a sentiment! But there is a space to put one if someone can suggest something!!

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 of the layout with all the pieces diecut and then coloured:

Here is a photo close-up of the colouring before I cut it and then after:
