Hey there, I'm back with another Hope You Can Cling To card for the Splitcoast Stampers card drive benefiting breast cancer patients and their families.  Jami's challenge, Hope for the Holidays, is to create a Christmas/Winter/Holiday card using any shade of pink as the primary color.  I'm also joining in this week's Our Craft Lounge challenge, Going Pink.  Your project should have a pink theme, and although you do not have to use an OCL set, you get extra points if you do.

Vintage Ornaments is one of the new singles from OCL's last release.  Love this stamp!  I'm still blown away by the fact that Marianne, from I Like Markers blog, not only illustrated this set but wrote the sentiments by hand!  Pure talent right there!  The image was stamped on white card stock and colored with Copic markers.  A Clear Glaze Pen was used on the strand of pearls and Glossy Accents on the ornaments. 

While that dried, Copic re-inkers (RV11 and RV10) were used to dye the seam binding.  This was my first time using seam binding and the Copic re-inkers did the trick, but I think I'll try an ink pad next time.  The Copic re-inkers left me and my non-stick mat feeling a little sticky...nothing a little blending solution couldn't help though!  The edges of the image were sponged for a softer look.  A vintage brad completes the card.  I guess that's it for this one.

Copic coloring:

Ornaments:  R89, R85, R83, R81, G29, G28, G24, G21, G20, Y28, Y26, Y23, 0  Pearls:  B000, C3  Ribbon:  RV34, RV11, RV10  Shadow:  B63, T2, T1, T0  Holly and berries:  G24, G21, G20, RV34
