Witch Way

So I had this crazy idea.

Copic Marker Norge decided to do a Halloween themed inspirational post. I couldn’t really think of anything to make for it and almost gave up. Then I went onto Etsy and browsed for Halloween Digital Stamps. After a bit of scrolling I found an image by Molly Harrison Art, called Witch Way, that I decided I could try. I then proceeded to print it in 12cm x 12cm and slowly started colouring the entire card! Trust me to do this the day before the deadline when I had never coloured the image, or something of that size before…

I coloured it all with Copics and drew in the moon, sky and tree as I went along. The squiggly lines in the sky are for some reason a lot more prominent in the photo than on the actual card. Oh well.. can’t win them all…

Anyway. I think it turned out alright. Perhaps there will be more colour only cards in the future…

Let’s have another photo, too, because… why not?!

Tall cake

I’ve been enjoying colouring up images by Mo’s Digital Pencil the past couple of weeks. This tall cake one I bought specifically to use for a couple of birthday cards I had coming up. Isn’t she the best?!

For the cake my sister insisted I needed to have some glitter. I used mostly transparent glitter, but with a bace layer of R00 and R12. As you can see from the colour list below, you don’t need to use a lot of Copics to colour up a pretty image and make it into a card. This time I stuck with just 2 colours for most of it, sometimes 3 if I was colouring up bigger areas. It was fun colouring up a lighter image again after the very bright contrast ones I’ve done in the past few blog posts!

I’ve used a fair few dies on this card: butterfly and leaf die by Precious Marieke, border die by La-La Land, alphabet die by Kaboks and gratulerer by Papirdesign. The flowers are as usual by Wild Orchid Crafts. And I used a bit of white acrylic paint around the edges of most elements.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E25, E29, E31, (clothes) W1, W3, YG01, YG03, YG67, (cake) E41, E43, R00, R12, Y13, YG16, (plate) C1, C3

Ellie Elf with her presents

It is the middle of October, and Copic Marker Norge is back with its regular monthly challenges! This time around we’re starting Christmas a little early.

I recently bought one of those stamping platforms. I love it! I am finally able to stamp properly, I’ve started embossing and I am once again using my stamps to colour up. For this reason I went with a rubber stamp for this card. One I once won. It is from Stamping Bella and I think it’s “totes adorbs”!

The card is being kept reasonably simple with a magnolia die cut border, some shiny purple card candy from Craftwork Cards and some paper scraps I had laying around. I believe the paper is by Creative Imagination, Lili of the Valley and Papirdesign. The sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad, where I finally played with some embossing!

It was quite a fun image to colour up, actually, so I am sure there will be more of this kind before Christmas is upon us!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E25, E27, E34, (outfit) V09, V12, V15, V17, C1, C3, C5, W1, W3, (presents) YG03, YG67, G99, Y13, Y19, Y38, (floor) E41, E43, E44, E47

Shaker card and winter wryn

It’s Friday and it’s fab! It’s Tiddly Inks time! Winter Wryn is in my spotlight today.

I’ve done it. I’ve started making Christmas cards. But instead of doing the ‘same old’, I decided to have a go at a shaker card for the first time. As usual I didn’t follow a tutorial, as I think it’s more fun to try stuff on my own. I do like to make things awkward for myself, right?

It is not perfect. I decided to double layer the foam tape and had to cut it by hand so the thickness isn’t the same on both layers. This means that the little stars I used got stuck around the side and it looks like I’d made a frame with them as well. It works. It looks great. But it wasn’t intentional, haha!

The ‘god jul’ die is from Kaboks, the flowers from The Hobby House and Wild Orchid Cards, Martha Stewart made the puncher, the white candy is from Craftwork Card (I coloured two of them with YG67), and the paper is by Maja Design. Oh and the stars in the shaker card? That is just some confetti I had laying about. In a bag that is, not all over! I will have to get something that looks like snow for the next one.

Here you can see the stars being all over:
