ABC Challenge – F is for Festive

Hip hip hooray it's time for another ABC Challenge and this time it is all about F is for Festive. Our sponsor for this challenge is Magnolia-licious, which means I get to use a beautiful Tilda image. So many delightful images to choose, and the one I decided on is from the latest Lovely Duo Collection 2015. Here is my card:

I made my card a little bit brighter this challenge!! Yesterday I was lucky enough to attend a Copics colouring course at my local stamp shop and the course was all about the No Lines technique and involved using the RV colours. I haven't used these colours a lot before, so it was fun to play with them. I can tell you it was a little bit daunting at first... Anyway for today's challenge inspiration, I decided to colour my delightful little Tilda using this technique and colours. I was quite happy with the end result and will be trying this again. Here is a close up look:

I stamped my image in Memento London Fog and coloured it with my Copics. The colours I used are skin: E0000, E11, E000, E00, R20, hair: E47, E44, E43, E42, E40, leaves: G40, G82, G85, ground: W00, W1, W3, W5, dress: Y00, Y21, Y23, Y26, RV0000, RV02, Rv04, RV06, RV09, RV19, rings: Y28, Y26, Y23.

Cheers, for now....
