Here is my first project using the new set "Pussy Willows". This is a beautiful set, decided to create a vintage tag and will be entering it in several vintage challenges...
Copics used: B26, E37, C2, 4, 5
inks used: Ranger's Distress - Walnut, Faded Jeans, Rusty Hinge, Black Soot
cardstock - light brown, not quite navy, stash designer paper
embellishments:  ticket from THoltz, stash seam binding, ivory center tag fr stash

paper pieced little bird and crimped ticket
_______________________________________

next is my project with the new "Ice and Snow", hand drew an ornament shape from dark blue cardstock that was covered with the snowflake in this set and white embossed...

then decided to stay with the snowflake theme and created the background

Cardstock and ribbon is from MFP
ink is Memento Black and Danube Blue, Dew Drop Brilliance - Moonlight White embossed with Seafoam White embossing powder,
using white gel pen added accents:  dotted more snow and added circles in snowflake openings
last touch was adding a little snowflake charm - it fit perfectly....


enjoy the hop and best of luck in the draw to win a FREE Set!
hugs,
