Copic Marker Europe GDT

Good morning everyone how are you all? Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.
A few weeks back the lovely Tracy asked me if I would be GDT for
 Copic Marker Europe......OMG it took me like 3 seconds to say yes!! However since then I've been full of nerves & when it came to colouring my image I was incredibly nervous.............

I chose to use an image by one of my favourite artists & its another one of her new releases.

I have made a christmas card for a dear lady friend who inspires me all the time, & there was no question to what image to use, it had to be an SC image & this is the new 'Stockings', isn't she fab!!!
This lady deserves foofiness lol ;0)

I have added 'Snowflake Corner' & added Pearl Dots. The sentiment stamp I've had for ages but cant remember where from, it goes perfect with this image tho ;0) 
Added thick Burlap, seam binding & gingham ribbon all from my stash & tied a
 Bronze Christmas Charm, these are gorgeous.
Under the flowers I added 'Holly' die cut.
I have used 'Lost & Found Christmas' papers & inked all the edges using walnut DI. I lurve this pad :0)

Added a 'Frostyville Wreath' & the sentiment I cut out using a WOJ tag die & slid underneath the image.
I used copics to colour this image & I added bits of Stardust Stickles.
Colours used...........
E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R22, R20
I also went all around the outside of the image with 90% Warm Grey Prisma pencil & added
Added stickles to the poinsettia & a pearl & pearls in each corner. Red & white flower from my stash.

Ingredients used..............
'Stocking' - Saturated Canary
MME 'Lost & Found Christmas' - MCH
Tag Die - WOJ
Pearls, Stickles & Viva Decor Pen - MCH
Flowers - WOC
MB Wreath & Snowflake Corner dies - MCH
Sentiment stamp - Molly Bloom
Marianne 'Holly' die - MCH
Bronze Christmas charm - MCH

Thats it from me pop yourself over to CME blog, there is some serious talent on that blog there really is. I would like to thank Tracey soooooooo much for asking me to be GDT, I really am thrilled & honoured you asked hun.

Thank you soooooooooo much for stopping bby, you all totally rock!!!!
