Christmas - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
My mojo has gone AWOL again which is so frustrating especially as I've been looking at my very small pile of Christmas cards & knowing I am running out of time fast to create all the Christmas cards I need & I doubt I'm alone, so it's a good job we have today's new challenge for you!

It's Wednesday which means -

& this week our challenge is -

& this week the design team are featuring

Penny Black logo

products on our cards.
If you have them we would love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to enter our challenge.
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.
Do you use Instagram?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

This week I am featuring Penny Blacks adorable Sharing A Song clear stamp which I have coloured with my copics. I have mounted my image onto Simon Says Stamps White Glitter card stock & added some pretty glitter to my image using my Tonic Nuvo Glue Pen. This was the first time I have tried this new glue pen & absolutely love it! The lovely sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps new On A String stamp set from the fabulous Stamptember release.
This is probably the most CAS card I have ever created as apart from the glitter the only other embellishment I have used is a few drops of Tonic Nuvo White Crystal Drops.

The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R30, hair - E44, E43, E41, coat - W6, W4, W2 / G94, G43, G40 & white gel pen, hat, mittens & scarf - RV95, RV93, RV91 / C3, C1, C00, skirt - RV10, RV00. RV000 & copic multiliner, tights - C3, C1, C00 / RV10, RV00, RV000, boots - E33, E31, E30, pinecones - E59, E57, E55, branches - G99, BG99, G85, sledge - E74, E71, E70, snow - C3, C1, C00, B0000.
