With a Whiff of Joy

Good evening to you all in the land of blog, Bridget here :)
Today I get to show you the card that we made in my Copic Card class at Grimsby Crafts this afternoon, for those of you in the area that use Copics and want to learn more about how these wonderful pens can be used, then pop into the shop and put your name down for the next class which is on the

21st August 1pm - 3.30pm

Today we learnt the following techniques
Feather Blending
Hair colouring
Pleats and Fold colouring
Back ground colouring

we also got to play with the glue and get just a little messy whilst using that gorgeous lace.  All of the products on the card are available and in stock at Grimsby Crafts.

So here is the card
it is an 8 x 8 inch card, using some lovely 12 x 12 olive papers and the Papermania Capsule Mono Collection purple papers.  The image has been framed with a grand nestie oval scallop and the image plate is the grand nestie oval.  The lace has been sandwiched between the layers of the full scallop oval, the image plate the gorgeous lace and the top double die cut scallop oval.  An MS punch has been used down the edge of the card and liquid pearls.  The ribbon a plain white ribbon has been coloured with a V04 copic pen to perfectly match the colours on the card. The sentiment scroll is another nestie and the flowers are from Grimsby Crafts, Hobby Craft and Wild Orchid.  The leaves are also from a nestie set.  The inner has been made to match. 

Here are some close ups
The image was just perfect for the pleats and folds and the hair for the depth of colour.  
The ribbon coloured to perfection 
and the flowers
Such a pretty card for the class.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 200 follower candy.  I will be posting my 300 candy at the end of the current candy.  For those of you that have not yet entered the 200 follower candy you can do so here, thank you to Feline for now advertising my candy too.
