Mad For Markers New Challenge

Hi there Copic fans!

Whoo Hoo, it's a new challenge over at Mad For Markers and a timely one for me might I add.  I sure needed a prod to get me working on some Christmas cards and with the new Mad For Markers challenge being Christmas Cards in Non Traditional Colours (using Copics of course) I'm well and truly motivated now.

For my card I have gone with PINK, GREEN and CREAM.

I have used the stamp set "Doodled Christmas" from Kaiser

My Mum sent me up some leaves that she had puched or die cut I'm not sure but there were all in different colours but the backs of them were white. So I just flipped them over and coloured them with Copics. I also coloured the clear rhinestones so that they would match too.

Copic colours used are:

R81, R83, R85 for the Baubles and Rhinestones

YG93 for the leaves

Head on over to the Mad For Markers Challenge Blog to get your daily dose of ispiration and to link up your Non Traditional Christmas card. I can't wait to see it!!

For all your Copic and related supplies head on over to Mad For Markers online store.

Mad For Markers post to Australia and New Zealand and stock a large range of Copic Markers, Blending Card, Masking Paper etc.

You can also check out the store blog and challenge blog for tips, tutorials and inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by

Michelle :-)
