Copics: - E000 | E00 | E01 | E31 | E35 | E57
               W1 | W3 | W5 | R81 | R85 | R46 | B21 | B26 | B23 | YR30
Embossilicious leaves embossing folder A4
Co'Ordinations white wash card collection
Plain white C5 card base
Plain black card
Marianne leaf dies
Spellbinder d-lites leave die
Tonic petal pairs punches

  1. I decided on a C5 card and used a plain white one followed by some matting with black card.
  2. I then embossed a piece of co'ordinations white wash card using my A4 embossalicious folder called tumbling leaves I think - a very useful folder to have in your stash.
  3. As I was using co'ordinations I sanded that down to highlight the embossing.
  4. I had printed my image out a couple of days before as I find this allows the ink to be well dried, although I still get some bleeding.  I then coloured her in using the copics listed above.
  5. I cut her out slightly outside the frame but you could just cut the frame off, cut her out or she would be ideal for decoupage too.
  6. I then matted her onto some black card and used some pearl gems either side for a bit of bling.
  7. Of course me being me I just had to put some flowers on!
  8. I did put some black ribbon around my co'ordinations and some pink ribbon and then fixed it to my card.
  9. My flowers are made using tonic petal pairs in plain centura pearl and then brushed with your inks.
  10. The leaves are a mixture from spellbinders d-lites and Marianne.
Hope you like my use of a wonderful digi stamp.
