A Red Top Hat...
Hi all... I had a fab weekend!! Loved going to the craft shop in Elgin, the girls there are just so friendly!! This is one of the nellies I purchased! I love Leanne Ellis designs, so I am surprised it has taken me quite so long to buy them for myself!!
Whilst at the shop I got to look at some of Tiets and Judy's cards they are even more amazing in real life! Incredibly talented ladies!! also got a few hints hand tips.
I have gone for the monochrome look as I finally got some Memento ink, so I have been able to have a proper play with my copic's. I don't have many only 3 shades of grey and 2 skin tone so I am fairly limited..however its a start! I have gone over the top hat with Anita's glaze and have sprinkled some red glitter in it.
I plan on entering this card for a couple of challenges:

(the red hat sparkles - however you cant see it very well, every time I tried to take a close up photo the camera said that my battery was low.. very strange..but if you click on the photo you should be able to see it!)
