Copics and Graphic 45

Hi everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations. I love learning! One of my favorite parts of our crazy craft world is all the new products and techniques.  My latest adventure is Copics.  In fact this is my first completed project using Copics. Let me know how you like this tutorial.  If you want more in depth, just let me know since this is my first. 
 These are the colors I used.
I started by stamping this image 3 times.  It is from Northwoods Rubber.  I bought this at Archivers awhile ago.
The first layer is colored lightly.
I then added my first on top of the second layer which was colored a slight bit darker.  Finally I colored and cut the third layer a bit darker than the second.
I then added the first and second layers to the base.
Next to add more depth, I flipped the poinsettias over and hot glued some pine looking branches.  I bought these in February at Hobby Lobby.  They are pipe cleaners that look like pine branches. 
Doesn't it look great?!?!
I then cut this top note shape form my Imagine. I then inked it with Distress Ink.
 I then stamped this sentiment from Pink By Design Vintage Holidays.
Next I used Glossy Accents to cover the mats for my card.  After I spread a nice thin layer, I sprinkled Coarse Glitter all over and let dry.
Then I used Beacon 527 adhesive to adhere the two layers together.
  I wrapped twine around the edge of the card and mounted it to my A2 base.


My final step was to add my top note shape and the poinsettias.
  Here are some more angles.  Remember you can always click to enlarge the pictures.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.  As always thank you for reading and of course subscribing and following both here at She's A Sassy Lady and on my personal blog at 217 Creations.
