Beastie's Birthday

Hello -  My first post of 2018!  Happy New Year!
I made this card for my Goddaughter's birthday using a digi image called Dark Queen from Tiddly Inks
We always watch the film Maleficent together and this image that I used just reminded me of the film. The film is basically Sleeping Beauty but from the perspective of the Witch and it's really good!! She is the fairy Godmother and calls Sleeping Beauty "Her little Beastie"

I used a Friskars punch on a panel of My Favourite things Pinstripe in purple and I used the grey star paper from Pink Fresh Oh Joy collection which I used a MFT oval die to cut an panel. I added some gold letters and stars from Thickers and I used Lawn Fawn Harolds ABC to stamp "BEASTIE"

OOOO I almost forgot.... this was also the first outing for my new COPICS! I got a set for Christmas and was sold by just the black and Skin colours that I used on this card!! That brush nib just blows all the others away. So I immediately used some Christmas money and bought another 72!! I am still 100+ missing from my collection but... they will be mine!!! (MWAH HA HAH HA ... Evil laughter!)

I still used Promarkers too -
Cool greys
Purple & Wild Orchid
Raw Sienna, Cinnamon & Tan

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Tiddly Inks - Anything Goes with Tiddly Inks
Passion for Promarkers - Make it Digital
Die cut divas - Use something new
Sweet Stamping - Anything New
Love to scrap - Anything Goes

I really love how she turned our and I am definitely (and I did resist for sooo long!!)  a convert to Copics - but I still love all my colour choice from my Promarkers!!

See you soon,
Liz (:(|)x

  13. Wooow your coloring is fantastic! I'm very impressed that u bought 72 markers in one go! So do you find copics' colors brighter? Iuse promarkers because that's what i find in the local store but have always found them a bit dull and have to brighten them up with pencil contrasts!
