Enjoy the summer

If you have noticed that I am late with this month’s card for the Copic Marker Norge challenge then you’re absolutely right! One of the super ladies on the team offered to swap teams with me this month when I was running short on time in the middle of June. Thanks!

I’ve used a Make it Crafty image for this enjoy the summer challenge theme we’re running. For a change I’ve not used the full image, but cropped it closer. Isn’t she adorable? It’s been coloured in with copics, of course, and you can see the list of colours below.

Other supplies used here are from Live and Love Crafts (now closed down), Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart punchers, some cheese cloth and pearls. The paper, if I remember correctly, is by First Edition Paper.

Copics used: (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (dress) YG03, G82, G94, G99, W1, W3, W5, (flowers) Y04, Y08, YR04, and a white gel pen

Disco power

A week or two ago, I was sat looking at my craft stuff, unable to decide what to make. So, I asked my boyfriend to pick some colours, and he did… Purple, orange and green. Orange. I don’t like orange. I don’t know why, but I tend to do my best to avoid this colour when crafting. But, I decided to go all out and use a bright orange. In addition he gave me the theme of ‘disco‘. To be honest I felt at a complete loss, but soon I started coming up with ideas and this is the result of it. Turns out I actually really quite like it!

The paper are from Panduro, Papermania and Paper Cellar. The pre-coloured topper is by The Hobby House. I have used card candy by Craftwork Cards and flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts. The circles are made with Spellbinder dies and the leaves with a Martha Stewart puncher.


Party hardy

Today’s card is something different. For once I have ventured into the land of bold colours. My main intention here was to try to colour the stamp in with bold colours, not really planning to use it for anything but practicing colouring and shading. However, I ended up liking it so much that I made it into a card and started colouring two more images with bold colours. It was actually easier than I had anticipated.
