It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas  Ev’rywhere you go; Take a look in the stores, glistening once again, with candy canes and silver lanes aglow.

I absolutely LOVE Christmas time and making Christmas cards and gifts! So I am very pleased to share with you a card I’ve made using the brand new FBD Rubber Stamp ‘Decorate It Girl’

freshly brewed blog hop

My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair and stockings: E44, E43, E42, E40 dress: E55, E53, E51, E50 decorations: R27, R24, R22, R20, G20, YG67, YG63 I have added a pattern to the baubles with my Sharpie White Paint Marker and some sparkle to her top and decoration box with Stickles. Her skirt was made by pleating a Cheery Lyn doily that I’d cut in half, quite effective don’t you think?
