Woodlands

So, it’s December. Apparently. Whatever happened to the rest of the year? hmm…

In December we host an Advent Calendar at Copic Marker Norge lasting up until 24th of December which is the main day for Christmas celebrations in Norway. Every day there’ll be a new inspirational coloured craft, a Christmas song and some tips or a recipe or other fun things.

Two days ago I kicked it all off with my card. I felt Christmas was still a while away so I decided to keep it more winter and woodland themed using an adorable image by Ching-Chou Kuik. I bought it before Christmas last year, but never got around to using it. I’m quite pleased how it turned out both colouring and card wise!

The dies are from Noor Design, I used distress ink and acrylic paint, as well as some lace from Live and Love Crafts.

I thought I’d share an angled photo as well so you can see the layers a bit better.

Dino Danny

It’s Friday and time for a new Anything Goes challenge at Art by Mi Ran’s facebook group! Our optional theme this month is Mermaids! As you will see I didn’t only opt out, but I went with something completely different. I used one of the brand new boy images in Mi Ran’s shop called Dino Danny! He is so cute! I love him! My mojo has been gone since before New Years, but now it’s back! At least for colouring. I decided to keep the card simple.

Wryn’s Leaves

It is time for a new challenge at Tiddly Inks! And as autumn is well on its way here and the leaves are turning all over the place and filling up the lawn, the challenge theme is quite appropriate! Fall colours!

I picked the awesome Wryn’s Leaves, which I coloured in with copics. It was quite fun to colour, although I made the actual drawn in leaves disappear somewhat..

What does an autumn card need? Leaves! Lots of leaves! So I went crazy with my Martha Stewart punchers and Noor Design dies and put leaves everywhere! All the layers are on foam stickers so that the leaves really are poking out everywhere! I used papers from Maja Design, Memory Box and Lili of the Valley and lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The swirly thing-a-ma-bobs are from Kort & Godt.

Let’s have a close up! It’s been a while since I did any of them.

Birthday cake

I have lost my motivation, completely. I have managed to make a handful of cards the past month, but that is about it. I’ve not felt like updating the blog, even though I have had photos ready to put up. However, it is time to snap out of it and carry on. So here is another card.

I have used a pre-coloured topper by Lili of the Valley, as well as lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Most of the other stuff is bits I have had laying about for quite a while, and lost the lables a long time ago.

Autumnal

Time for another one I have coloured myself. An autumn one. We are mid-autumn here at the moment and it is so pretty and colourful outside. I think I have to go for a walk just to take photos of it one day next week. But yes, anyway, card.

The image I have coloured is an Elisabeth Bell one from the colouring pads at The Hobby House. I coloured it in with copics. I have used plain stock card for the corners and the brown paper is by Tim Holtz, and I don’t remember where the purple one is from. The flowers and ribbon are by Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is by Kort og Godt. I have also used various dies and punches: Dienamics, Martha Stewart and QuicKutz. Ok, it’s not quite that untidy and hard to find things, but you get the gist, haha. The jeweled butterfly is purchased at a local shop.
