Dino Danny

It’s Friday and time for a new Anything Goes challenge at Art by Mi Ran’s facebook group! Our optional theme this month is Mermaids! As you will see I didn’t only opt out, but I went with something completely different. I used one of the brand new boy images in Mi Ran’s shop called Dino Danny! He is so cute! I love him! My mojo has been gone since before New Years, but now it’s back! At least for colouring. I decided to keep the card simple.



Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (hair) E31, E34, E37, (outfit) G40, G82, G94, G99, Y17, YR04, E19, (ground) E42, E44, E47


Winter snowman

Christmas is coming up so fast! I haven’t done any Christmas cards today, but this is one I did yesterday! It is for the new Art by Mi Ran Facebook group challenge for December. Our theme is Winter. Yes, it was my idea. I love winter cards so much. Can you tell? Heh. Besides, it was snowing the other day, so I had to make another snowman card!

I used the super cute Hello Mr. Snowman, again. And yes, I did it in blue this time, too… I coloured it all in with copics. And then I went mad adding snow with a white pen. I made trees and the santa with reindeer using Noor Design dies. The paper is also from them. The lace I got at Live and Love Crafts, whereas the snowflake puncher is by Martha Stewart. The snowflakes are sparkling!


Copics used: (hair) 100, BV23, BV25, BV29, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20, (outfit) E49, R22, R24, R27, G40, G82, G94, W1, W3, (snow and sky) C1, C3, B0000, B000, B91


Angelica and hearts

As it is the start of December we have another Progressive Challenge for you at Mi Ran’s Facebook group. Buy the first image this month, play along, and get next month’s image given to you! Fab deal, right? This month we are playing with Angelica. If you’d like to just purchase her, then she will be available in the Art by Mi Ran shop in January.

I coloured mine in with copics and used various papers and embellishments from Lili of the Valley (papers), Wild Orchid Crafts (flowers), Craftwork Cards and Martha Stewart.

Krissy Christmas

Give me a W. Give me an O. Give me another O. What is that?! WOO! It’s Friday! Time to enjoy the weekend to the fullest. I plan to colour, catch up on TV series and just relax! Perfect!

Today we start a new anything goes challenge in the Art by Mi Ran Facebook group! The optional theme we are doing this month is “use a die cut”. I am glad it is not limited to just one though, or I would be stuck! Come along and play, won’t you?!

I decided to use Mi Ran’s super cute Krissy for my card, and of course I coloured her in with copics! I used various paper scraps which I painted with acrylic paint and I also used a snow pen by Rayher which, after ending up everywhere as the top flew off followed by its contents.., provided a nice texture. I used Martha Stewart punchers and the Noor Design tree die which I love! Apart from that I used a little card candy.

Talkative Tracy

Yesterday was Friday, the first this month. That means Art by Mi Ran’s facebook group has started its new progressive challenge! This month we are playing with Talkative Tracy. As usual the progressive challenge works as follows: You purchase the image for this month’s challenge (unless you participated in October) and make a project with it which you enter into the challenge album. Once you have participated you will recieve next month’s image for free upon request and this carries on until you choose to not enter one month, at which point you have to purchase the next image to join in again. Anybody can join in at any time. It is great to see the variety of projects created using the same image! If you’d rather not participate then you can simply wait a month and purchase the image in Mi Ran’s shop.

I actually used various scrap paper I had laying around for this card and painted the edges with acrylic paint. I used Martha Stewart punches and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers along with Mi Ran‘s gorgeous image which I coloured in with copics.


The colours I used are as follows: (hair and boots) E53, E55, E57, E59, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (jeans) W1, W3, W5, W7, (jumper and phone) 100, C1, C3, C5, C7, B0000
