Happy birthday, friend

Sometimes colouring is more fun than other times. I have been lucky and have had so much fun colouring this year, trying new combinations, trying new types of images and simply enjoying myself! I’ve lost count how many images I’ve coloured so far this year, which is a bit crazy, haha.

Today I will show one of my favourites so far this year, colouring wise. It is a Make it Crafty image. I played around with making a turquoise coloured dress which has a hint of yellow in it. Then I worked quite hard to try to make all the little details in the image show and I’m quite pleased how well that turned out. It was quite fiddly at times!

The background paper is from Paper Cellar, the gorgeous chipboard is also from Make it Crafty and I added the smaller text myself on printed paper.

Want a closer look at the chipboard? I coloured it with the same colours as the dress, and deliberately did it a bit darker.

Here is a close-up of the colouring as well, in case anybody wanted to look at that!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (white) C1, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (yellow) Y04, YR15, (purple) V00, V06, V09, (dress) BG53, BG49, G40

Clean, simple and yellow.

I’m joining in with team 1 this month for our new moodboard challenge at Copic Marker Norge. I have been quite heavily inspired and had some random impulse to just try to make most of it myself.

It is funny really… yellow must be the colour I use the least when I craft. I don’t really like it. But this, this I can live with. I think it turned out quite cool!

I’ve drawn in the background with a Copic multiliner 0.1 black. I went with the patterns and feeling I got from the moodboard. (You can see the moodboard here.) I ended up drawing tons of little lines and it was actually fun! I think I will practice this and try it again. After colouring in the border on top I coloured in the yellow with Y11 and coloured in a couple of candi to match (100 and BV25). I then drew three lines across at the bottom and then started filling it in with loads of little lines before I decided to make the bottom part of the card yellow as well.

Before I glued on the image and the candi, I printed out the sentiment I made on the PC straight onto the card base I’d coloured up. Thankfully I managed to get it where I wanted it… that could have ended quite badly, haha. Now I just need to pick out a thicker multiliner next time I am the shops so I don’t have to colour in thin lines again!

The image I’ve coloured in is by The Greeting Farm. This is the first time I’ve made a card with one of their images. Cute one, right?

Yesterday, my boyfriend made me a new box to take photos in, and I LOVE it! I can now have a background behind the photos to make it easier to see the edges of the cards as well as taking photos of the cards a bit side on. Doesn’t it make the photo look great?!

And now I can also take the photos like this! Yey!

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (hair) B60, BV23, BV25, BV29, (clothes) Y11, Y13, Y19, E97, W0, W3, W5, (self-made card background: Y11, 100, multiliner)

Wryn fairy

Did you see the new release over at Tiddly Inks? There are so many cute ones and they have even got a few brand new clear stamps! Yey!

One of my favourites from this new release is the little fairy! The image is called Magical Day. I decided to doodle a bit on this one and gave her a striped top so she looks a little like a bee fairy! I also embossed the wings with gold glitter and white after colouring them yellow to make them sparkle.

It’s not a big surprise anymore than this is yet another CAS card. I made the background with a Tim Holtz stencil, some distress oxide inks and gold embossing powder. The butterfly is also coloured with distress oxide and cut out with a Precious Marieke die. I printed the words “my friend” onto the card base and then embossed a Little Birdie text stamp in white.

Wryn with dandelion

There is a big new Tiddly Inks release today! New clear stamps, new digital stamps, new awesomeness! There is no secret I love me a bit of Tiddly Inks and I think I might have a new favourite! I thought I would show a card with her today, because she is super cute! She is called Wryn Wishes.

I did, as I have done a lot lately, decide to make a clean and simple card. CAS card are quickly turning out to be my new favourite, and they take no time to make at all! This one I did with a printed sentiment, a border stamp from Neat and Tangled which I used blue memento ink on, and a background paper from Lili of the Valley. The image is coloured in with Copics as usual.

Copics used: (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (pinks) R20, R22, (green) YG01, YG13, YG63, YG67, G99, (sky) B32, C1, (yellow) Y13, Y38, E97

I will be back with a new card tomorrow!

Thankful heart, CAS

This is one of my favourite Tiddly Inks images. I love the close-up, framed style of it. The last time I used this image on a card, I had loads of layers, so I wanted this one to be different. CAS it is!

The name of the stamp is Thankful Heart and you can find it here. I’ve coloured it up with copics. The papers is by Paper Cellar, the bottom sentiment by Stempelglede and the black buttons are candi by Craftwork Cards.

Here is another photo of the card; a close-up of the coloured image.

Copics used: (sky) B34, C1, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (jar) B000, B00, B02, (flowers) R22, R24, R59, Y04, Y19, Y38, YG63, YG67, (dress) BG53, BG57, BG78
