Petal blossom

It is that time again! A new Anything Goes challenge on Mi Ran’s Facebook group. I have used Petal Blossom to make my DT card and coloured it in with copics.

I noticed some of the other DT girls had used pink for this one, so I decided to use a different colour combination and ended up doing one I’m not even certain I have tried before! Blue and purple! I do love it though and will be sure to use it to make another card again soon! When I started colouring, I was very usure how her dress would turn out as I’ve not had much luck with folds so far. I am very happy how it turned out, though! Best I’ve done so far I reckon. Hopefully I will finish the skin and hair class at Kit and Clowder soon so that I can start on the clothing one. I’ve never been good at doing things in order, or waiting until I have time for the tutorials, heh.

The papers used on this card is by Lili of the Vally, the flowers and ribbon are Wild Orchid Crafts, I’ve used stickles for the sparkly border and lace from a local yarn shop.


Copics used: (hair) E53, E43, E44, E47, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20, (dress) B81, B83, B85, B87, B89, (flowers and petticoat) BV000, BV00, BV02, BV04, BV08, (background) E50, E51, E53, (basket) E3, E5, E7.

Mi Ran DT, shabby daisy

I have some exciting news! I was very recently asked to join Art by Mi Ran’s Facebook Design Team, and of course I accepted! It is the first time I have been on a team for an artist, and it is both intimidating and wonderful! I do love her art and I have coloured up a fair few of her images so far. Have a look at her Etsy shop and I’m sure you, too, will find something you love!

Today’s post will feature the very first card I have made as a part of the Design Team. It is for a progressive challenge. The progressive challenge works as follows: You purchase one specific image for the month you wish to start joining in the challenge. The subsequent months you will receive the image for the current challenge as long as you took part in the previous month’s challenge. Everybody uses the same image each month for this particular challenge. This month we are using Delightful Daisy and the challenge will end on 7th May.

I used copics to colour in mine. I decided to give the card a shabby look, using papers from Lili of the Valley, flowers, ribbon and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts, distress ink, a papermania doily and stickles glitter glue.


These are the copics I used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E29, E97, (dress) BV000, BV00, BV02, BV04, (centre flower) YR07, YR15, Y08.

Baby in pram

Here is a card I made by request. I coloured in a Lili of the Valley stamp using copics, used some ribbon, lace and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and some Noor Design dies. I then added some pearls, used some Spellbinder dies and Martha Stewart punches for this baby card.


Frozen inspired

I admit it: I have scheduled up a few posts. I thought I’d grab hold of that mojo for blogging and use it while it lasted as it’s tended to only last an hour every few weeks as of late, heh.

This is a card I made in late November for a young girl. It is frozen inspired, as the colours may suggest, and as she is a December baby it seemed like a good idea with a winter theme. I used a Saturated Canary image and coloured it in with copics. I added sparkles to the wings and used both frantage and glitter around the various parts of the card. The border die is Tim Holtz, and the punches are by Martha Stewart. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


It is spring!

Blog posts seem to be few and far between these days. I am still crafting regularly, though, I am just not posting what I make on here. Today I have decided I really need to add an update though, so here is one of my most recent cards.

I have coloured an Art by Mi Ran image using copics. The background papers are all from various Lili of the Valley paper pads and the sentiment is a stamp from there too. All the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves are made with a Noor Design die.
