Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #72

Happy Sunday and Good Morning from Sydney, Australia! I don't normally post on Sundays but I finished this card last night and didn't get the chance to post it so I'm doing it now.  This card is my first ever entry (if I'm not mistaken from memory) to the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge. Yay! The FTTC72 challenge was set by the talented Silke Ledlow and she provided a sketch for us to use.


And here's my take on that:
This is also my first to colour this image (I always colour Tilda from Magnolia and some CC
Design's girl image stamps).  Please understand that this is just a RAK stamped image I received from my lovely online friend Jackie.   Honestly, I see her often on other people's blogs but I really don't know the image name (sorry). Would you mind telling me who she is, please?? I just want to give proper credit to this cute image and I don't want her to go unnamed for days. TIA!

I coloured her with Copic markers and as you can see, I didn't do much shading (aside from her hair) as I don't have yet the nearest colours of the green and orange that I used. I was just actually practicing to colour her and when I was about to colour her clothes, I thought I had to find a dp to get my colours from. I wanted something with brown (my favourite colour!) and so I took this lovely dp from Basic Grey.  All edges were distressed using Antique Linen Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.  I punched the scallops of my frame to match the Fiskars Threading Water border punch that I used.

And for reference, these are the Copic colours that I used:
hair: E29, E25, E33
skin: E000, E00, E11
basket: E25, E35 / flowers: Y06, Y11, YG17 (for the leaves)
top: YR16, Y11, YG17
socks: YG17

I used my Copic Spica Glitter pen Orange to put a bit of sparkle on her ribbon. Sorry but the cam wasn't able to capture that.

Thanks for the visit and  remember, it's Sunday today and it means.... Church day!! Time to celebrate God's goodness with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Have a blessed Sunday!
