First Christmas Make of 2024!!

Hi Everyone, 

WOW its certainly April shower's here in Scotland. They forgot to turn the tap off though and its permanent showers!!!! Since October I think we have had about 3 days without rain!!! Hope you all have much better weather.

I made a plan last month that I would try to make at least 1 festive card a month till December so I want so stressed out by then!!! So here is number 1. 
I followed a Sandy Allnock You Tube video (Here) Although I didn't have the same stamps or colour of copics. Mine ended up with copics, promarkers and prismacolour pencils on it. Oops!!! 
Card Recipe
Black Card A6.
Clearly Besotted Stamps for Outside.
Inside Sentiment Stamp - Crafters Companion.
Coloured with Copics. Promarkers and Prismacolour pencils
Stickles Glitter Glue.
Posca Pen for white parts. 
Docrafts Red Glue for Rudolph's nose. 

I think I am going to have to admit that I am still definitely a promarker girl. I really struggle with copics. I cant seem to get an almost the same colour but manage perfectly with my pros. Mind you I have used them for about 16 years now!!! Thats mad!!!! Time flies.

Thanks for dropping  by my blog. Stay safe, 
Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

I saw your card on CKC and fell in love with it.

I had used off-the-shelf markers before I started with Copics and I love them. I think that whatever you get used to and are familiar with is probably going to continue to be your favorites. This card is fantastic.
