I did some google searching to get some idea of the way to colour these. I used Copic markers
V012, V015 and V017 with a little bit of yellow from a Spectrum Noir pen C3. I used a couple of greens to do the leaves and a very pale blue to provide a shadow. I did somehow manage to get marks on the page - hence the well place sequins! The sentiment is from Beautiful Day set from Altenew.
I also made a very simple card using some purchased die cuts. I got 5 packs of die cuts, twines, enamel dots usually $3.99 each for a $1 each. I don't usually use these sorts of die cuts, but when I need a card quickly they can work well
I went to the local stationery store to pick up the white card stock I use and found a pad of this beautiful pearlescent blue card - $4.99 for 40 sheets of A5 card. Good value. This makes for a nice base and I'm sure I'll be using it a bit.
