31. Happy New Year, and how dots make a difference

First off I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year! Go easy on the bubbles with the children around, and take a moment to remember all the good things that happened to you the past year before fretting over a new one. I hope the new year will bring you creative moments and great memories that last a lifetime!

Today I have a simple card I was challenged to do. Well, two, actually. It seems fitting to add today, the last day of the year. It is definitely the day to get the bling on! The challenge I was given, by a fellow Copic Marker Norge design team member, Kjersti B., was to make something metallic. I decided I should try colouring in metallic, and for some reason picked an image with loads of folds in the dress and funky hair. Why not doubling the challenge, right? Oh, and I asked if I should make it sparkle or not, so when she let me choose I decided to do both…

Anyway, here are the finished cards. I’ve used glittery paper around the image on the non-sparkly one, but kept it without embellishments etc. I think the colouring turned out alright as well. It wasn’t too difficult colouring up something metallic. I’ve used an image from Make it Crafty, called Girl with Glass Slipper.

So what about the glittery one? Well, I used the exact same colours for the dress, but I added a whole bunch of dots everywhere. It really sparkles, doesn’t it?! Throwing a lot of dots in the mix can really transform a dress!

Copics used: (silver) C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (purple on card 1) V12, V15, V17, 100, (red on card 2) R22, R59, R89, W9 + two different white pens.

Thank you so much for picking my card!
