Watery birthday celebrations

Copic Marker Norge is celebrating its 6 years this month! This is the card I have made for the birthday celebration challenge. Pop over and celebrate with us!

I have used an Art by Mi Ran design by Whimsy Stamps, Coventina, and went for my favourite colours, a mix of turquoise and blue! I’m not sure I’ve actually used this colour combination on a card previously, but I should definitely use it more.

The sentiment is my own, and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. The bottom layer of the background papers was originally more grey-teal shaded, but I went over it with blue distress ink to get the colour I wanted for the card. The same distress ink was used around the edge of the image and the sentiment. The papers are from Panduro and Papermania and I did all the edges with a tool I got at Panduro. The dragonflies are my newest dies and they are by Magnolia. Aren’t they darling? The lace is from Live and Love Crafts, the ribbon from The Hobby House and the cheese cloth I bought at Bikuben.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E25, E27, E34, E41, E59, (dress) BG01, BG05, BG09, BG78, (water) B000, B00, B02, B05 + white gel pen

Grow a little love

Right, so there is no secret I love Tiddly Inks images, especially all things Wryn! I was on their design team a while back and as they’re having another DT now that I have more time to make cards again I thought I would submit an application. It is a great team to be on, so perhaps you should try your luck also? You can find the DT call here. This is my card for said application. It’s a Wryn, of course! And coloured with Copic makers!

Actually, this is not my favourite. My favourite is the one with the cupcake, eat more cake, but as I used that one for the previous time I applied for a DT, I thought I should pick another one this time. Although I adore all of the winter ones, I decided to go with grow a little love, which I have also coloured up loads of times. I honestly have way too many favourites, I admit it.

I’ve used various stash from Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and Love Crafts (reopen, please!), Martha Stewart punchers, distress ink, pearls and lace and doily from various places.

Here is the card from another angle.

Oh and the text? That is Norwegian for good luck!

Flowers for tea

Yet another card I made last year using a pre-coloured image. Both of the images used here are from Lili of the Valley. The edges of the image got distressed and frantaged. I had fun making a different card design for this one and added a ribbon so it could be tied together. The colour combination is also one I haven’t used much if I have at all. I think the peach and aqua actually worked, though. For the embellishments I used mostly Noor Design dies with a spellbinder one for the circle and a Martha Stewart puncher. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts as usual.

Tiddly inks DT call: eat more cake

So, it would appear that Tiddly Inks is holding a DT call. I have only recently ventured into the world of Tiddly Inks – their images too cute! What can I say, if you don’t already have some Tiddly Inks, you’re missing out! I just spent the weekend colouring up a few and cannot wait to make them into cards!

I made this card using my favourite of theirs: Eat more cake. To be fair, the name of the stamp is just as appealing as the stamp itself! One can never have too much cake!

Right, back on track. I’ve coloured the image in with Copics and distressed the image before adding frantage to the edges. I think this might be my first aqua and yellow card actually, but it is a great combo that I’ll definitely use again! I ruffled up the edges of the papers, which are from Papermania (the aquas) and something I don’t remember, as usual… The dies are Noor Design, the flowers Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. I’ve used a Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp and some ribbon and cheese cloth from a local shop.

Green goth maiden

Finally weekend. My sinuses are none too happy so I suppose I will be spending most of the weekend with a bunged up head… Oh well, I guess I’ll get some crafting done, eh!

This card was made for a challenge at Kit and Clowder in their facebook group. You got this gorgeous free digital image by Ching-Chou Kuik and were to colour it in lilac and teal inspired tones. Look at all the butterflies it’s got! Yey! I think this is the first time I have ventured into the land of unusual hair colours. I coloured it all in with copics using mostly BG70s and BV0s for the teal and lilac shades. At the end I added some liquid pearls to the butterflies.

The papers are by Lili of the Valley and this pad fit the colours I used in the colouring perfectly. I have used a bunch of flowers and big pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts and made butterflies with some Noor Design dies. At the end I added a pearl row to give the butterflies a body, and gold glitter to the end of the wings so they tied in better with the ones I coloured in.
