Earth Ballerina

I had a request for a ballerina card in earth tones, and this is what I came up with. The gorgeous stamp is by Aurora Wings and I’ve used various bits and bobs from Kort & Godt, Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart, Noor Design, Live and Love Crafts. The hair lost some of its vibration in the photo, but oh well. Can’t have it all!

And here is a closeup of the ballerina charm down in the corner. Isn’t it lovely?

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E08, E19, E49, E97, (clothes) E25, E29, E41, E42, E43.

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

Aurora Wings – Elements

Another flowery ballerina

Today is the day. My first proper unspirational post for Copic Marker Norge. I have admittedly put it off because the other girls are super talented and I enjoy looking at their creations. But when you’re due, you’re due, and I am! Don’t forget to enter in our current bingo challenge while you’re there!

I absolutely loved how this ballerina from Aurora Wings turned out last month, so I decided to colour her up again. This time the image is 7.5cm (whereas it was about 10cm last time) so I had to be even more careful and watch the details even closer. It was quite the challenge, but fun!

The papers are by Pion, which I ruffled up and layered with some cheese cloth (bikuben), lace and pearls (LLC), and ribbon. The flowers are as usual from WoC and LLC. I made the top sentiment myself and the bottom one is from LotV.

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.
