Ys and YRs that's the challenge this month!

Hello there Copic markers fans, I'm here with another Mad for Markers challenge, this month we want you to use those warm colours and break out the Ys and YRs in your collection.

Your project must feature mostly Ys and YRs although you can use other colours in the image.

Here I've made my first Christmas card for the year, using Christmas Lantern Marci, she's so cute and she said vintage was the go!

 I just loved making this card, I haven't done vintage for a while.  The papers are Kaiser Timeless Classics, I've used Very Vanilla SU card, Vintage Photo distress ink to age the edges.  The lace is coloured with E42, it started out white!  I made the pins with some glass beads and I've used Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and Lily of the Valley sentiment and spellbinders Moroccan Motifs die which has been sponged with Vintage Photo.

Now for all the copics used here

The coat, hat and shoes are Y28 and E40, yes that's right, and they blended beautifully! then some YR31 on the trim with Sand spica added on the edges.
Dress YR31 and YR12
Hair:  Y11, 15, 23, 28
Skin:  E000, E01, E11, R20
Lantern YR27, Y15 and 0  Lemon spica and crystal effects glossy coating.

Hope you're inspired to join us for our challenge this month, don't forget you can get all your copic supplies from Sammi at Mad for Markers store.

I also just love vintage and when I saw the challenge at Eclectic Ellapu was vintage this week, I had to link up.

As I'm also a huge fan of Wild Orchid Crafts and their amazing flowers, I've also added this beauty to their Bling it up! Challenge.  

And no week would be complete without an Anything Goes  Make it Monday entry, (yes I've been a bit slack in that department of late)
