Crystal Flakes

Hello folks and I hope you are all well on this rather chilly Wednesday.  I love this weather its all bright blue sky out there and crisp - beautiful.  

Anyway, just popping in quickly to share with you another one of my Christmas cards I have made and this time I inked up a sweet Sugar Nellie image called 'Crystal Flakes'.  I coloured her up using my copics and my colour palette was decided by my choice of papers.  I've been very good this year and not bought any new designer paper stock as I have stacks left from previous years and it seemed silly not to use it.  

I made my poinsettias using the Spellbinders 'Layered Poinsettia' die set and cut from plain white card and coloured with copics to match the image and then just added some Twinklets.

Image:  Sugar Nellie 'Crystal Flakes'
Medium:  copics
Papers:  My Mind's Eye 'Signature Christmas'
Dies:  Spellbinders 'Layered Poinsettia' and 'Floral Ovals', Memory Box 'Frosty Border

Finally a little close up, adorable isn't she and definitely one of my favourite Christmas images.

Copic List

Face/Body:  E000, E11, E13, R30
Hair:  E43, E47, E49
Clothes:  BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG05, BG07, BG09 + W7/
