 I have used Graph'It Markers to colour the image, in Cedar, Mint, Military, Jasmine and for the 1st
time I used the Mix'It Blending mat and a Blending Pen to colour the image took me some time
but I am very pleased with the finished result.
I also used Copics for the face in E000, E00, E04.
I made the front of the card with Book Binding Acetate, this is a lot thicker
thank the normal craft acetate and embossed it using
Embossalicious Folder  from Crafters Companion


The Hat Pins were made by the very talented Lindsay Ellis Jolly this is linked to her
Face Book page

All other materials used are from my stash.
