Waltzingmouse Stamps - Harriet



Claire from Waltzingmouse Stamps offered this sweet digital image she calls 'Harriet', with a challenge for World Card Making Day, who could refuse!

I decided on a traditional Christmas theme of rich reds and green. The image was coloured with Copic markers and cut with a Spellbinder Label 4 die.  I've added a sentiment from WMS Very Vintage Christmas and the beautiful border from Victorian Fripperies that I trimmed around for the red lace.  Some Annabelle Sprinkles in cherry with the holly leaves and some organza ribbon complete the card.

I'm also entering this card in the Mad For Markers challenge which is to make a card using a digital image.


See you soon.........

Thank you for the advice, I managed to print out a usable sized version of her, but... how do I colour her using my alcohol markers (They're not copics, but similar, called promarkers) without the ink she is printed with running and messing my markers? I have some watercolour pencils, but everyone else is using markers! Me and digis are not made for each other I fear!
