It is right in the middle of Easter and it is time for a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge. This time around the theme may be a bit more challenging, it is monochromatic. I think it was fun, though, although I cannot recall if I have ever tried to colour in black and white before.. maybe once? hmm. The only problem I’ve had is when I’ve coloured it in, it’s hard to take a photo that will show all the nuances in the colouring, but hey can’t win them all..

The image I’ve used for this is by Make It Crafty. I’ve cropped the girl so it’s possible to see the details when coloured with only a few markers. I’ve used Copics, as always. The paper is from Papermania, sentiment from Lili of the Valley, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the punchers are Martha Stewart ones.

And a side on view.

Copics used: W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, 100


Art deco card

Ah, Monday! I never thought I’d say that. I usually hate Mondays… Oh well, I’ve started preferring week days as of late. The past month or two, weekends haven’t exactly gone to plan. At least summer is around the corner. Hopefully things will soon be back to how they were. I have a lot of cards on request lately, so that should hopefully keep me busy for the next month.

The image is from Papermania, and the patterened background paper is by Paper Cellar. The feathers are also from Papermania, I believe, whereas the pearls are from The Hobby House. I have used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.



Happy New Year

Happy new year, everybody! Hopefully this post finds you full of energy for starting a new year and that you are still following whatever ambitious new year resolutions you decided on this year!

I only have a simple card for you today. The background papers are plain shimmering silver and a black and white patterned paper, which may or may not be a BoBunny one. One of my new years resolutions is that I shall pay closer attention to which papers I use when I make cards, haha! The pre coloured image is by Lili of the Valley, as is the stamp I’ve used in the corner. I’ve used dies to create the scalloped edge around it.


This card has been entered into the following challenges:

Allsorts – It’s as plain as black and white


Black and white

My boyfriend’s birthday today, so I wanted to make a special card. I couldn’t post it until today though, it would hardly have been surprise if I’d put it up early! After rummaging around my stash for a while, I spotted some different type of paper I’d never used before and ideas were forming immediately. Black, white with greys and silver! Now that was certainly something I hadn’t done before and it was a challenge indeed to shade the stamp in greys, not using any other colour at all. What fun it was, though!
