Birthday boy

The new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge has been running for two weeks now and it’s my turn to show some inspiration for our theme birthday. I decided to colour up this boy by The Greeting Farm as I hardly ever make boy cards I thought I’d surprise with one!

Copics used: (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E21, E25, E27, E29, (purple) V22, V25, V28, BV29, (blue) B02, B04, B06, B37, (green) G02, G07, G28, (yellow) Y04, Y17, YR09 + white gel pen

Colouring video: LotV Stargazing

I have another colouring video for you today. This time I’ve done a pretty quick one. I wanted to show that it’s not that important to stay within the lines or colour up carefully to get a good result. Scribbling can be a great way to do a sky, for example, and how you can quickly get a snowy effect on your image. By colouring up the image and giving it a background, you have a pretty quick and easy clean and simple card if you do it in a bigger size, and a great image for the centre of the card if you do it a bit smaller. Digital stamps are great that way. I will post the card up in a couple of days.

There is no audio for this video.

Mermaid and watercolour

I have finally tried some watercolour again! I made this background just playing around really. It is quite fun and I think it worked well for my little mermaid from MFT Stamps. I’ve made this card for their sketch challenge this week.

MFT Stamps – Sketch Challenge 453

Tiddly Molly celebrates

It is the first Tuesday of the month and that means we have a new challenge at Tiddly Inks. This time we’re playing tic tac toe. I’ve done both diagonal lines and the top row, so dies – stamp – ribbon, dies – patterened paper – lace and lace – stamp – embossing. My card is made using the Tiddly Inks stamp Molly Celebrates. I’ve used paper from Maja Design, dies from MFT Stamps and LLLC as well as my favourite lace and some ribbon I had laying around.

Copics used: (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (turquoise) BG11, BG15, BG18, BG49, BG78, (black) N5, N7, N9, (pink) RV63, RV66, RV69, (yellow) YR20, YR23, E97 + white gel pen and a black 0.3 multiliner

Sixty

I’ve made a couple of cards lately that doesn’t feature any coloured image. Instead it is the new rather large number die set from MFT Stamps that takes the spotlight. Here I’ve used some Maja Design paper, a couple of dies, some new lace and a bit of ribbon and flowers to make an elegant and soft coloured card.
