Whiff of Joy Challenge 50

I've really been in the mood to make holiday cards this weekend, so when I saw the Whiff of Joy sketch challenge, I knew it was the perfect excuse to pull out Lizzie with Muff.

Isn't she sweet? Lizzie was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with copic markers. I went over the swirls on her outfit with a Sakura gelly roll pen, and then added fun flock to her muff, collar, and the pom poms on her boots. For the finishing touch, I added Twinklets to make "snow" around her feet.

For my accents, I made more Twinklet-covered snowflakes. This time, I used vellum for the bottom layer. Isn't it pretty? I like the effect you get with the vellum, so expect to see more of these in the future.

The pretty designer paper is "Falling Flakes" and "Snowflake Stripe" by My Mind's Eye.

By request, here are the copics I used to color Lizzie. The BG72p is a custom mix. The BG70 family is one of my favorites, and it annoyed me that there wasn't a nice light BG70 to use for blending. To make a BG72p for yourself, combine 5cc's of blender fluid with 80 drops of BG72 refill, and then fill an empty copic marker.

Thanks for stopping by!

I got a quick question for you too...where did you find your labels for the ends of your Ciao markers! I've been looking at every store and can't find any small enough! Thanks in advance hun!
