Flower Ballerina

I am a little slow adding my post for the newest Copic Marker Norge challenge. That is what happens when you finish it last-minute before you head off on a short holiday, and don’t have the time or the connection to blog while away! Anyway, the latest challenge theme is Ribbon and/or Lace.

The card I’ve made for this challenge I made for my cousin’s confirmation. It’s a fairly big thing here and in Norway. As my cousin really quite likes my cards I had to try something different. What I ended up with was choosing to try to colour one of Aurora Wings‘ images while I’ve had laying about for a while, Flower Ballerina. It has merely been too daunting trying to colour it as I was worried it wouldn’t look very good at all. I’m glad I did try as I’m rather pleased with how it turned out. Now I cannot wait to colour it again!

As usual the image was coloured in using Copic Markers. I used paper from Papermania and plain card which I painted with white acrylic paint around the edges. I used a bunch of flowers and the ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts, some flowers and lace from Live and Love Crafts. The puncher is by Martha Stewart and the cheesecloth I purchased at Bikuben. All the small silvery dots around the image was added using liquid pearls by Ranger.
