Happy Holidays

Todays card was made already in July :-) I really, really love this card. It was really a labor of love. The masking of the floor took me a while, because the scale of the stone floor was not right at first. The coloring of this card is all done with Copic sketch markers. At this point i had not as many colors and i worked a lot with my blender pen (look at the fire place how the color gets light to the top). The more makers you have the easier and faster it is to color in of course. On the fire is some Stickles to make is sparkle, sponging was done with Close to Cocoa ink.

I just went to comment on blogs and found a wonderful card using also this Magnolia. check out Clodine's card using this Tilda. I loove this card.
This card is sold to Christina :-) Thank you so much that you liked this card.

Dear Claudia, thank you so much for commenting on my blog. I just wanted to tell you that I simply love your cards! I am just getting into using my markers, I don't have copics (unfortunately), but I do have the Prisma's, still learning how to really get the most out of them. Thanks for all the inspiration!
Sincerely, Leslie
