Copic Louise

We were very lucky to have Louise Roache demo on our stand at the NEC for a couple of days. She was promoting our Copic Ciaos and wow her samples were just amazing.

This one was a last minute sample Louise made before coming to the NEC, however, Louise had mentioned she wasn't over fond of - but I sooooo totally disagree. It's gorgeous!!!

Louise used Copics (of course!) to colour in the 'Tilda wearing Christmas Wreath' design:

Tilda looks fab sitting on the Tilda Clock, such an appropriate card to see in 2010 - it's brill. With a touch of glossy accents on the clock face to give the appearance of glass.

Even this New Year greeting is embellished with ferns and flowers brads and some bling! Bet you never guessed the flower is taken from Tilda design's head-dress - ingenious.

The card is finished off very nicely with a couple of brad'ed bazzill hinges, and notice how the flower/fern combo is repeated from the greeting. Great punched edging using the Martha Stewart Lattice Arch edge punch. The Mistletoe patterned papers are from the Tilda Christmas Collection.

Here's another card sample Louise made for display at the NEC.

These little chubby robins from artist Gillian Roberts are adorable. You can find all the colours of copics that Lousie has used to colour them in with, by checking this sample out on our online gallery where all the materials used are listed.

The background to the card is embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder and then accented with embossed die cuts from the nestabilities 'create a flake #1', then embellished with self adhesive gems and some random applications of prisma glitter too.

Great ideas from a very creative lady. Thanks Louise.

You'll be seeing a lot more of Louise if you decide to stop by instore!!
