Crochet Snowflake Tia Christmas Card, knitted baby blanket

Hi all, hope you are all keeping well, all good here apart from the cold bug, still busy at work to.

Today for my inspiration over at the Mad for Markers Store Blog I have used the cute Warm Wishes Tia from Some Odd Girl available here and created this Christmas card, this is my first go at crocheting a Snowflake, fairly pleased lol!  The sentiment I made using shrink plastic.

I have used spicas to add a zig zag pattern to the hat and tights as well as for colouring the skirt, pressies, bell, bracelet and adding highlights to her hair. 

Copics and spicas used
Skin - E000, E00, E01, E11, R20
Hair and Eyes - E31, E33, E35, E37. W10
Clothes - V12, V15, V17, RV10, RV21, RV23, RV25
Spicas - Lavender, Lilac, Pink, Blossom, Gold, Red, Olive
Copics, spicas, multiliners used as well as a huge selection of stamps, papers, digi images are all available from our Mad for Markers Store
