Mad for Markers Big Copical Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Mad for Markers BIG Copical blog hop! We are excited today to be hopping around the blogworld with bloggers from all over the world who all LOVE colouring with COPICS! 
If you can here from Leanne's blog then you are right on track.. if not then please go to Sammi's blog  to start at the beginning!

Here is my card for the hop:





I made a twisted easel card using an image from The Greeting Farm.  She is one image from the Miss Anya Collection and is available here

Here's the front view of my card.

It's a bit hard to see but I added some stickles around the image as well as the scalloped kraft circle on the base of the card, and on the tips of the flowers.  I used a spellbinders die to cut out the flourishes and used some Wild Orchid flowers.  A Martha Stewart punch was used for the leaves around the flowers.  I also colored the ribbon to match my card. I used my copic marker R89 to do that.  Did you know that you can use your copic markers to color embellishments?  It's super easy and it can make everything on your card match, if you want that look.


Once you have completed the hop please leave a comment and vote for your favourite creations... and you and the person you voted for might receive a little surprise prize!!
