Hatpin Card

This is the second card I sent off to my partner for our Hatpin Card Swap over at Craftmad for February (Gallery Here).  The other card is here.

The image is where this card originated from it is from Cardmadfairy called Julia.  I coloured it with my Copics one Friday night when I met with a group of other Copic Colourers.  It was the first time I had used these particular colours on hair and tried really hard to leave the white show through.  All the card and paper have been in my stash for a while so sorry no names.  The doily behind the image was white originally and the card did not seem right.  I saw someone else's card online and that they had coloured the why didn't I think to do that. duh!  Grabbed one of my copic pens that I had coloured some of the paper flowers with and coloured the doily.  I like this much better.  The hatpin I made with a dressmaking pin and a couple of beads from my collection.

Well have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting and all your lovely comments on my previous post.  :-)


  1. I love the image on your card. The idea of colouring the doily is so simple yet not blindingly obvious until told to you!! Then you think Why didn't I come up with it. Glad you liked your tote bag. The wine was good!!!
