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

More snowmen

This year is definitely the year for snowmen christmas cards. This is my most recent make using one of Art by Mi Ran‘s adorable images. It’s been a while since I coloured any of these now, so it was definitely about time! I am sticking with the theme of reasonably simple cards for the holidays and merely used a bit of acrylic paint and frantage embossing powder to give it a more wintery feel.

We are having an advent calendar over at Copic Marker Norge and this is my inspirational card for December 10th.

Fairy Lily

Time for another anything goes challenge at Art by Mi Ran’s Facebook group! The optional theme this month is music, which I decided (yet again) to opt out of! For my card I’ve used the adorable Fairy Lily. I’ve been wanting to use this image for a long time, and I finally did it!

The papers are First Edition papers, the flowers Wild Orchid Crafts and the dies are by Noor Design. The sentiment is my own.

Sweet Sally

It is time for another of the popular Art by Mi Ran progressive challenges! To find out what these are, and to take part, please visit the ABM Facebook Group. If you’d rather purchase the image without taking part, then you’ll have to wait until next month and you’ll find her in the shop.

As always I coloured her up with copics. This time I added some bricks and a back to stop her from floating mid air surrounded by white.

The sentiment stamp is by Lili of the Valley and the flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts.
