1 card: 6 challenges

Morning all!

well after last week when I got no challenges I finally got my crafty head on last night and made one card that covers 6!!

I love this Miss Anya image and moving away from traditional Christmas colours has given her a totally different look which I really like. I really wish I could shade properly with my Promarkers (I'm useless at colouring - need some lessons I think lol) As usuall there's plenty of glitter (peel off borders, on her coat buttons and on the 3 snowflakes) and I thought the lace would make it a bit girlie too :o)

The challenges I am entering are......

Moving Along With The Times #58 "Christmas"


Anyone for Anya? "Christmas in August"


The Corrosive Challenge "sketch"


The Crafty Pad "Chocolate and Cream"


Wild Orchid "One for the Girls"


Cupcake Crafts Challenge "Lace"

This is my first Christmas card this year - it was quite exciting delving into the Christmas stamps, more might have to follow! Hope she brings me luck, fingers crossed xxxxxx

  2. Gorgeous card, beautiful image and layout.

  3. Such a lovely card hun! this is absolutely beautiful!!!! :) A tip I have learned when using my Copic markers is to start with two tones of the same color. Use your darker color first on the outer edges and then go over with your lighter color. Then use a light gray to go over the darker parts of your coloring which will add a natural shade to your coloring. I hope this helps you out a little bit! :) If this doesn't make sense email me and I will gladly try to help you! :) I know how frustrated I was with my Copics when I first got them and NOW I love them so very much!!!!!! :)

    Again your work is absolutely stunning hun! Thanks for joining us at WOC!
