Baby giraffe

It is time for a new challenge at Copic Marker Norge. The theme for the new challenge is a new beginning. My contribution this time around is a baby card. I decided to go with one of the adorable baby stamps from Lili of the Valley. It’s been a while since I coloured up any of their images, so I’m sure there’ll be more of them very soon!

Here is a view of the card from a different angle:

Copics used: (giraffe) Y000, Y04, Y17, E41, E43, E44, E47, R20, R22, (present) B000, B00, B02, B05, B91, B93, B95, B99, (ground) W1, W3, W5, W7

Ever made a card for something you’ve been told you’re not allowed to make a card for? hahaha

I have. And this is the card.

There was an upcoming birthday party where I was told I wasn’t allowed to make a card for anybody, because their mom/nan had just started out with card making and didn’t want my card next to hers… So I cheated and made a very plain card for all of them in one go by adding up how old they were going to be. And yes, she liked it when she saw it so I got away with my sneaky card making! 😉

I’ve used an image from Some Odd Girl. It may be the first time I’ve coloured up one of theirs, I think. Cute, right? It is coloured in with copics. You can find the colours below.

Copics used: YR07, Y04, Y08, Y17, C1, C5, BG01, BG05, BG09, BG78, G09, Y000, E43, E47, E49

Fairy summer time

Allergy and sunburn season is up! Or as it is more commonly called: summer. Every summer Copic Marker Norge’s design team have one week each where they are to inspire copic users. This week is my week and here is my first card. I have gone through my stash to find something I’ve not coloured before and I found this. An adorable fairy by Saturated Canary.

I’ve coloured it all in with copics, as always. It would be a bit silly trying to inspire copic users with other tools, right? The various other stash are from Papermania, Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart and Live and Love Crafts. I’ve made the sentiment myself.

Here is a closer up view of the colouring. I think that is my least favourite part of this whole week… the close-ups.. hahaha.

I’ve semi hidden som flowers underneath one of the layers and here is a sneak peek of them:

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, R22, (hair) RV02, RV04, RV09, R89, (wings and dress) RV02, RV00, Y04, Y38, YR16, (flowers) B00, B02, B05, YG03, G82, G94, (lips and eyes) B00, B02, B05, B99, R24, R89

Enjoy the summer

If you have noticed that I am late with this month’s card for the Copic Marker Norge challenge then you’re absolutely right! One of the super ladies on the team offered to swap teams with me this month when I was running short on time in the middle of June. Thanks!

I’ve used a Make it Crafty image for this enjoy the summer challenge theme we’re running. For a change I’ve not used the full image, but cropped it closer. Isn’t she adorable? It’s been coloured in with copics, of course, and you can see the list of colours below.

Other supplies used here are from Live and Love Crafts (now closed down), Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart punchers, some cheese cloth and pearls. The paper, if I remember correctly, is by First Edition Paper.

Copics used: (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (dress) YG03, G82, G94, G99, W1, W3, W5, (flowers) Y04, Y08, YR04, and a white gel pen

Monochromatic

It is right in the middle of Easter and it is time for a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge. This time around the theme may be a bit more challenging, it is monochromatic. I think it was fun, though, although I cannot recall if I have ever tried to colour in black and white before.. maybe once? hmm. The only problem I’ve had is when I’ve coloured it in, it’s hard to take a photo that will show all the nuances in the colouring, but hey can’t win them all..

The image I’ve used for this is by Make It Crafty. I’ve cropped the girl so it’s possible to see the details when coloured with only a few markers. I’ve used Copics, as always. The paper is from Papermania, sentiment from Lili of the Valley, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the punchers are Martha Stewart ones.

And a side on view.

Copics used: W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, 100
