Hokey Pokey!

I treated myself to the new Nellie's Choice Dawn Christmas stamps now available at Cuddly Buddly and have managed to colour in 3 of the 4, but only made the one card so far. Fingers crossed I can get the other 2 finished and scheduled for the next couple of days while I am moving stuff down to Mum's. This first one is called Hokey Pokey! and could be used for winter birthdays or festive party invites as well as for Christmas. I've coloured with my Copics and added lots of clear crystal glitter with a glue pen, as well as touches of Stardust Stickles around the edges of the image and paper.
Here's the card, not so bright as the flash didn't go off this time. I've inked the edges of the image with Spring Pansy Versamagic chalk ink after I finished colouring to tie in with the piece of pink snowflake paper I had in my odds and ends box. As I'd coloured with a lot of creamy brown shades I used a cream card to mat the image and the paper before fixing to a white scallop card (the only pack that didn't get boxed) - I hope it works. I managed to cut and layer up various Marianne dies to create the embellishment then finished with cream pearls made with my pearl maker pen.

I remembered to make a note of the Copic colours I used to colour, so here goes:
skin tones - E000, 00 and 21. hair - E30, 30, 55 and 44
creamy browns - E50, 51 and 53. pinks - RV00, 63 and 66
the touch of green - G20 and G12
background B0000 and B000

Crafty Catz have a pink and brown colour combo challenge so I'm entering as I've used soft creamy browns with the pinks. And Totally Papercrafts have a Christmas in August theme so I can enter with them too.

Enjoy your weekend - I'm not sure when I'll be around to link up and blog but hopefully I'll be able to schedule a couple more cards to share with you until I'm back again.
