Tall cake

I’ve been enjoying colouring up images by Mo’s Digital Pencil the past couple of weeks. This tall cake one I bought specifically to use for a couple of birthday cards I had coming up. Isn’t she the best?!

For the cake my sister insisted I needed to have some glitter. I used mostly transparent glitter, but with a bace layer of R00 and R12. As you can see from the colour list below, you don’t need to use a lot of Copics to colour up a pretty image and make it into a card. This time I stuck with just 2 colours for most of it, sometimes 3 if I was colouring up bigger areas. It was fun colouring up a lighter image again after the very bright contrast ones I’ve done in the past few blog posts!

I’ve used a fair few dies on this card: butterfly and leaf die by Precious Marieke, border die by La-La Land, alphabet die by Kaboks and gratulerer by Papirdesign. The flowers are as usual by Wild Orchid Crafts. And I used a bit of white acrylic paint around the edges of most elements.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E25, E29, E31, (clothes) W1, W3, YG01, YG03, YG67, (cake) E41, E43, R00, R12, Y13, YG16, (plate) C1, C3

Purple pansy passion

No colouring from me today. Instead I am showing one out of three cards I was asked to make for three great ladies who turned 50 in June. For this one I opted for purple and shabbied it up a bit by roughing up the edges. The paper is possibly Maja Design (or I suppose it could be Pion), I can never really keep track of it. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the butterfly puncher by Martha Stewart.

Time for an imageless card

It has been a long time since I posted a card with a pre-coloured image, but it has been even longer since I posted one without an image on it at all. In fact, I don’t remember when that even was. That means I am due to post one, I am sure!!

Here is a card I made for my aunt’s 50th birthday. One of the blogs I admire is by Klaudia and her posts inspired me to make this card. Check out the totally awesome stuff on her blog.

I roughed up the paper, which is solid purple card and Maja Design, to give it a shabby feel. All the butterflies and leaves are made using Noor Design dies. The numbers are using QuicKutz dies whereas all the flowers are by Wild Orchid Craft apart from the berry looking ones which are from Live and Love Crafts. LLC is also the place where I purchased the lace.
