Treasured Time Challenge #5 ~ Shades of one color with some Bling

Go to Treasured Times 

Hello fellow Crafters,

Today I am posting for Treasured Times Challenge Blog. This is my last post as a full Design Team Member. I did ask if I could come back now and then as a Guest Designer. And I am happy to say that Jody was kind to let me do this. So for this challenge we ask you to create something with different shades of one color. Boy was that a challenge, lol. For my card I used a stamp by Erica Nicomedi and it is called Sweet Christmas.

This is such a pretty and cute image that I could not resist and make something special. This is my second easel card that I made and I found an amazing tutorial on one of the blogs that I follow- JenniferD's Blog. If you color with copics and you love to check out amazing artists, well you do need to check her blog out. 

Alright let me show you what I have done to create this card. The first two pictures show how the easel card base was made.

Simple measurements and two score marks- and there it is! The measurements are: 
29 cm by 14.5 cm
Score marks at 14.5 cm and then in a diagonal on one half of the paper.

I colored the image with Copic Markers:
Hat and Shoes: B91; B93; B95; B97
Shirt: B12; B14; B16; B32; B34; B37
Socks, Gloves and Belt: C01; C03; C05
Pants: B21; B23; B24; B28
Hair: Y21; Y23; E35
Skin: E000; E00; E11; E21; R20
Hat, Skirt and Socks: B60; B63; B66
Shoes and Gloves: C01; C03; C05
Bows, Leaves, Heart: B000; B02; B04
Hair: E21; E35; E37
Skin: E000; E00; E11; E21; R20

Here are some more close ups on some of the details of this card. I hope you like the card and will try to create a fun easel card if you have not already.
