Hi Peeps,

I almost forgot to post DT card for Copic Marker Europe which also fits Crafts and Me challenge this week for "Pretty in Lace". The image is one of the new stamps from Crafts and Me called "Masquerade".  She's out of stock right now, I wonder why? I love the BG range of copic colours, to me they are like sea green and I will definitely be experimenting with more of this range of colours.  The beautiful papers are my favourite at the moment, Pion, I am sure you have heard of them. Anyway, here is my card.........

I have used BG78, BG75, BG72, BG000 on her dress and feathers
For the stripes I have used C7, C5, C3, C1

It was hard achieving the bumps in her dress so that it looked like it went in and out but I think I got there in the end.

For her hair I used E53, E51, E50 and touches of E55 where I wanted it to be darker
For her face I have used E000, E00, E01, E11 and then I used BV00 over her eyes and bridge of her nose to show a shadow of where her mask has been

I also airbrushed a white rose with BG78 to match her dress and coloured the Make It Crafty Chipboard flourishes also with my copic markers.

My new Marianne Design Anja Border LR0212 arrived yesterday and couldn't wait to play, it's on both the edges of my card and has little roses embossed, beautiful and of course matches perfectly with the Marianne D Anja Corner LR0200. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I look forward to reading your comments and I've just added Candy HERE.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

Little Darlings - Pearls
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Wild Orchid Crafts - White plus One
