Warm Wishes Tia Non Traditional colour Christmas Card with Shrink Plastic Sentiment

Hi all, hope you are all well, running a little late, the camera was at work, took the card into work and couldn't find the cable to connect to the computer, so brought her back home again lol!  Today for my inspiration post over on the Mad for Markers Store Blog I have used the gorgeous Some Odd Girls Stamp 'Warm Wishes Tia'  set which comes with a cute penguin, sentiments and presents, now available from Sammi.  She is coloured with some of my new favourate copic colours.   Kindyglitz Glitter around the edges and in places on embossed background, which is metallic card.

A closer look at all the sparkle, she was also sprayed with glimmermist after I cut her out and glossy accents on eyes, bell and shoes.

Had a little play with the shrink plastic as I had an idea to make a tag/label using it and this is some of what I came up with, on the card I coloured the edge with Copic V09 and punched a hole for the twine.  Below are a few different variations, if you click on the photo, you can see the writing is very clear.  Need some different coloured inks pads now.

Papers are mainly Kasiercraft from the 'Dear Santa Collection'.  Sentiment SU 'Many Merry Messages'. 

Copics Used

Hat - RV63, 66, 69, Spica Garnet
Hair - V09, 20, 25,
Clothes - V04, V06, 09, BV01, 02, 04
Skin/Face - E000, E00, B24
Parcels - FRV1, FV2, RV21, BV11R85 and Spica Garnet
