You may have arrived from Lydia’s blog but if not you can start here and work your way around by following the Hop List included in each of our posts.

Now for my creation for this week.

I recently took a Copic Class taught by my wonderful friend, Julie Price, and the technique was Monochromatic Sepia. I thought I’d put the class to use today and create this gorgeous card.


I’ve used Princess Tilda from an older Magnolia Collection called Fairy Tale. I have stamped my image onto Neenah Solar White Card  using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with my Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin - E21, E00, E000, R20; Hair, Clothes & Ground - E57, E55, E53, E51, E50, W5, W3, W1, W00

Here’s a closer look at the image.


My image has been layered onto the Petra Large Oval die from Marianne Design which has been sponged with Soft Suede ink. The pretty paper is ‘Olivia’ from the Princess Collection by Prima Marketing. My card is edged using the Vintage Floral ‘Around the Page’ Punch from Martha Stewart. I’ve added some gorgeous lace from The Ribbon Girl and finished off with a bunch of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts

Here’s one last look.
